Two Postal Service employees were recently honored for their efforts to help the organization become more sustainable.
Environmental Specialist Julie Theroux and Hinsdale, NH, Postmaster Cindy Mason received a Federal Green Challenge Sustainability Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Theroux’s accomplishments include developing a series of guidebooks for 3,200 Post Offices in New England and New York and distributing recycling kits to 32,000 Postmasters.
Mason collaborated with Theroux and others on a “rain garden” at the Hinsdale Post Office that has helped reduce stormwater pollution in the area. The garden is the first of its kind at a USPS facility.
Theroux and Mason received their award at a ceremony in Washington, DC.
