A lovely cover from Indonesia!

World Environmental Day or Earth Day is celebrated every June 5 worldwide. The slogan for year 2008 was 'Kick the Habit! Towards a Low Carbon Economy'. The message is meant to inspire and encourage actions to eliminate the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, CO2, a main contributor to global warming.

The Indonesian Post helped to disseminate this message by issuing a set of postage stamps, entitled "Environmental Care" on 5th June 2008. One of the stamps depicts the use of bicycles instead of motorcars. While the other shows a seedling to relay the message about planting and caring for trees.

A miniature sheet can be seen on this lovely cover sent by Erlangga Ryansha. Thank you so much!
