Dear Congressmen and US Postal Inspector,
We petition to bring back the International Surface Mail Service as well as other economy mail services that were eliminated on May 14, 2007.
Although new replacement services are offered, these cannot compare to the rates of the ground shipping service which took 4-12 weeks for delivery. The surface mail service is economical, environmentally friendly and suitable for many needs.
The International Surface Mail option is important and will affect all countries with relatives, organizations, or businesses in the USA. The impact will be felt by individuals, businesses, customers, expatriates, humanitarian aid groups, charities, religious groups, students, book companies who provide free books to poor countries, and now also the environment.
We urge the USPS to [reimplement] this service swiftly so that customers may again enjoy cheaper shipping rates or create a newer, better service. We also urge congress to push the USPS to make changes that will benefit its users.
