Give your Car a Day Off !

Green Friday : "Give your Car a Day off"

Here is a beautiful set of stamps and a miniature sheet issued by Romania Post campaigning for the environment protection through these stamps with the theme : " Give your Car a Day Off ". The stamps are wonderful with great idea and can be implemented by countries to save the environment. 

Stop! Today The Car Is Standing Still !


Romfilatelia once again urges responsibility for environmental protection, joining the “Green Friday” campaign, initiated by the Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests, through the postage stamps issue with the theme: “Give your car a day off!”, which were put into circulation on Friday, January 28th 2022.

The Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests (MEWF) initiated and launched the “Green Friday” campaign on the 12th of March 2021 in order to promote alternative means of transportation. The campaign, baring the slogan “Give your car a day off!”, urges employees of the public sector in Romania to use alternative means of transportation instead of cars on Fridays in order to decrease pollution and lower carbon emissions and encourage the use of pedestrian traffic for the benefit of health.
