Nepal Postal Slogans
by Colin Hepper
The erosion of the forrest in Nepal has become a major problem for them, as they had no re-planting programs. With no fuel source other then wood, and with trees being cut down, much of the fertile soil was washed away with rain. So for the last 25 years a re-planting program has been going with the help of outside aid. This is also reflected in the number of postal slogans on this subject.
|1976: County's future lies on planting trees. Success of planting trees depends on peoples participation|
|Let us plant trees and improve our luck||We need not only to plant trees but also to protect them|
|1981: Let us plant a tree for clear,
This slogan is know as being used to cancel letters.
|1983: Having plant a tree, protect it.
This was used only on inward mail into Nepal.
1985: By timely afforestation prevent soil erosion.
1985: To make the children's future bright, let us plant trees.
1981: Plant trees - Save woods.
