This year the great initiative was launched – people from around the world join "Think Green" project to improve our planet and make it greener.
StampNews.com is glad to introduce two new stamps by Gibraltar Post that support this project.
The first stamp features the winner of the PostEurop "Think Green" joint design competition, a design from Cyprus Post artist, Ms. Doxia Sergidou which was chosen amongst 24 outstanding entries. The second design features an illustration of a human brain represented as tree leaves with sketched thoughts of how to think and act 'green' created by Giordano Aita.
"The main purpose was to show that it is in our hands to create a greener planet. Thus, I have placed a hand on the top side of the stamp which basically represents anyone of us, actively replacing the grey colour (the environmental pollution) with the green colour which symbolizes environmental living and hope, andin turn inspire us for a better world.
The left side of the stamp represents the polluted side and is painted grey showing us the tremendous disaster caused by the industries, automotive vehicles, power generation and in efficient waste.
It also shows how the human activities are negatively influencing the environment. In contrast on the right side of the stamp, is the green side which shows us how using renewable energy resources, acting in a more environmental way and becoming more environmentally aware could positively affect the environment. This will not only have a positive effect in our generation, but it will also help the future ones to co-exist in harmony" adds Ms. Sergidou.
