Biosphere Isle of Man - Think Green

Collection Issue Date: 7th October 2016

Five stamps celebrating the Isle of Man's UNESCO world biosphere region status

Isle of Man Post Office presents a set of five stamps honouring the prestigious accolade, including the Europa stamp for 2016's theme of Ecology in Europe – Think Green.

Inspiration for the collection came from the theme of the Europa stamp project for 2016, which features in the 77p stamp. Unusually for Europa, postal services around Europe shared a common design to mark the 60th anniversary of the movement, a motif which reflects the concept that 'it is in our hands to create a greener planet'.

Issue Information

Isle of Man Post Office is delighted to present a set of five distinctive stamps recognising the Isle of Man being awarded UNESCO status as a world biosphere region – the first entire country to gain this prestigious accolade.

The Isle of Man is committed to protecting the environment, and that is reflect in this stamp issue. It features the UNESCO Biosphere status, the innovative approach to waste disposal in this island community, and the dedication to developing new 'clean tech' including TT Zero, the race around the famous Isle of Man TT course for electric-powered bikes, and the investment in hydro-electric power production.

All stamp sheets for this issue, and supporting stationery, proudly carry the logo of the Forestry Stewardship Council, underlining the Isle of Man Post Office's commitment to sustainability and protecting the environment.
