Tell the U.S. Postal Service: Join the Climate Fight

Send Your Message

USPS has a new plan to spend up to $11.3 billion to purchase a new fleet of almost entirely antiquated, gas-guzzling, climate-busting delivery trucks — locking USPS into decades of carbon pollution when they should be transitioning to the electric vehicles (EVs) that we desperately need to fight the climate crisis.

USPS’s new plan could lock us into more carbon emissions for decades.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is moving forward with a wasteful, scientifically-flawed plan to purchase a new fleet of almost entirely antiquated, gas-guzzling, delivery trucks — that will be on the road for decades — instead of investing in the electric vehicles (EVs) that we desperately need to fight the climate crisis.

USPS Postmaster General, and Trump-era appointee, Louis DeJoy is behind this terrible scheme — and is hell-bent on forcing USPS to commit to 30+ more years of gas-guzzlers.

DeJoy’s awful plan comes despite overwhelming opposition from President Biden, the EPA, and thousands of NRDC supporters like you who have been pushing the USPS to go electric.

Submit an urgent letter of protest and urge USPS to join the fight against climate change by transitioning to 100% EVs!
Submit an urgent letter imploring USPS to do its part to fight the climate crisis by transitioning to 100% electric vehicles.
