Hong Kong issues special Stamp "Green Living"

Hong Kong Post announced on Wednesday that a set of special stamps on the theme of "Green Living" will be released for sale with associated philatelic products on April 14.

According to the Hong Kong Post, it is the first time for the stamp sheetlet bearing a leaf-shaped design in Hong Kong, aiming to echo with the theme.

Hong Kong Post seeks to promote "Green Living" as a positive means to contribute towards sustainable development. Set in refreshing and uplifting colours, the four stamps deploy a tender green shoot as background to highlight common green initiatives such as water conservation, emission reduction, energy saving and waste recycling.

The stamps, stamp sheetlet, First Day Cover and Presentation Pack are all printed on FSCTM-certified paper that satisfies stringent standards on the use of raw materials and production processes.

Official First Day Covers will be put on sale one Hong Kong dollar each at all post offices effective from March 31.
