EUROPA 2016 Think Green Cover from FRANCE

This beautiful EUROPA 2016 cover was posted from France with 2 lovely different stamps.
The EUROPA 2016 stamp issue has been one of the most loved issue of EUROPA CEPT stamps. Most of the countries issued the Common-Design Stamps to raise awareness among the populace for the use of Green energy and cleaner environment. The 1 Euro stamp was issued by France on 8 May 2016 with the common-design.
 The stamp on the left shows the Grand-Lejon Lighthouse (Scott 3371d), issued on 9 Nov 2007. It was issued as a part of a set of 6 stamps issued in a souvenir sheet - titled "Les Phares" meaning "The Lighthouses". Interestingly when I tried to translate Les Phares" from French to English using the Google Translator, the result turns out to be "The Fog Lights". The image of the Souvenir Sheet is as below
