Be champions and arbiters for conservation and preservation efforts across the globe.

To those who follow us,

"I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it." This is something I often find myself thinking while admiring the varied landscapes of this planet, be it the beaches of southern California or the high peaks in the Rocky Mountains. All of my fondest memories are thanks in part to the earth and the constant wonders she provides. However, I am afraid for you and yours. I

This can be done by using solar energy, electric cars, recycling, and doing other activities to reduce waste.

Dear Future Child,

My parents showed me so many wonders of mother earth growing up. I will always cherish my childhood memories gardening with my mom and dad. As a young child I would always look forward to cleaning the garden with my father. We would always find the something new in the garden whether it be creatures or objects. He made it such an adventure. My mom made so many wonderful dishes

Quero mudar meus consumos, direcionar os que têm maior força para fazer diferente, votar em políticas com projetos que visem a mudanças climáticas.

Crianças (Hoje não mais)

The ego's too much to my daughter the their futuro filhos. Que ela sirva para todos os futuros que estão fazendo hoje e agora. Acabo de assistir o documentário / filme: Antes do Dilúvio, apresentado pelo Leonardo Di Caprio. O nosso mundo está morto pelas mãos, confesso que é difícil de entender o poder de auto destruição do ser humano, todos os dias uma corda aperta um pouco mais nossos pescoços. Tudo

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner. I want to plant trees and keep my home full of life, clean air, and healthy attitudes. In effort to positively impact climate change, I want to continue to compost and make sure everything I cook with, snack on, and drop goes into the bin in order to keep all of MY organic waste out the landfill. Individual

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

Fe,

The salad spinner on our bottom shelf in the kitchen is one of your favorite possessions. Your mother and I purposefully leave it accessible. You don’t particularly care for salad, or any leafy green for that matter, but you giggle so much when that spinner goes around. We just played with it for 20 minutes on the kitchen floor and you laughed every time we pushed it down and the

I hope that my generation will discover and implement a way for everyone to live and operate sustainably, and without waste.

Dear tomorrow,

It is currently May of 2018 and our planet is being pushed to its limits. Our population is increasing, and because of our society’s obsession with growth, we are using more natural resources than ever. Our industries are polluting our planet and our people are living unsustainably. I fear that we will continue to abuse our planet to the point of inhabitability. No other species has had as much of

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

Dear Alyssa,

It's very simple really: air and water are the biological basis of all life. Everywhere and forever. And the quantities of each are largely in fixed systems - through the hydrological cycle and through photosynthesis, where plants create oxygen for us to breathe. So all public policies should rightly be based on the protection of the air we breath and the water resources we use. For my part, as your

I hope that all of those who are a part of my future understand that there needs to be more self-reflection and consciousness.

Dear Future,

There isn’t one happy moment that doesn’t involve me engaging with the outdoors. My travel experience is minimal, but the best part of those five-hour car drives was the absence of people within small pockets of trees. All of my favorite movies and shows have some aspects of a romanticized wild nature, and to my disappointment I realized that is the reality of our world; every piece of the “wild”

I will never forget my love for my mother, the love she had for the earth, the love the earth showed her, and the love they both have shown me.

Dear children of the future,

My mother taught me to love the earth from a young age. The earth is in everything we see and do, and as it has granted us life and love we must return life and love. She taught me to take only what we need from nature and value what it has given us. She taught me that we are a part of the earth. She taught me that we

My hope for the future is that growth and prosperity in your mind will no longer rely on inequality and destruction; that the idea of growth and progress to you means increased health, happiness, and sense of community.

Dear future generations,

I hope you’ve had the chance to know how beautiful and clever the Earth can be. In 2018 we’re seeing how human development has warped its natural processes and I hope that in your time real change has already begun to stop this. Climate change and pollution is a result of our selfish expansion on the planet but my hope for the future is that growth and prosperity in your

Are you now living in a world where there are limitless channels but limited species?

Dear Future Self,

Are we still here? If so do we still have things like democracy and pistachio nuts that are sold without their shells? Do we have enough water for everyone, and has the cast of Bravo TV’s Vanderpump Rules found inner peace? Did our investments in the global entertainment/mass anesthetizing industry help us cope, or did it distract us too long from getting work done, and are you now living in

One of my biggest hopes is that the human race continues to evolve and create, but that we begin doing so while being cognizant of any and all repercussions.

To the Future Generations of Planet Earth,

The planet and environment is in a process of decay started by humans, which is something many of us are aware of and whole heartedly believe. I have always known the dangers that face the planet but only recently discovered the complexity and systemic problems that push the problem further. I don’t know if anything has or will get better, but my hopes for the future is that everyone begins

The goal of preserving our earth for future generations is one common goal we must unite on.

Dear future generations,

It’s 2018 and every day we are noticing more ways humans are impacting the environment. As a country, and as a world we must come together and realize that no matter what are political or social views are, the goal of preserving our earth for future generations is one common goal we must unite on, despite our other differences. Over the past year or so, I’ve become increasingly aware of

I amongst many have decided to focus my life career-path in helping the cause, with environmental issues at the heart of it and you the future in the mind.

To the future generation,

I want you to know that climate change is and will always pose a threat to us humans. Currently there are many people who back the claims that our planets temperature keeps rising and the earths systems — its ability to replenish and store the necessary nutrients needed for us to survive — are by our own doing threatened. Our oceans for one, have become polluted with so much waste,

Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.

To my wide-eyed warrioresses,

Cradling your daughter in your arms for the first time changes you—and your future—forever. Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear. A climate-changed world is anything but a proud legacy, my dear daughters. But you have given me gifts more powerful than despair: wonder and curiosity, as well as the passion of my eldest and the resolve of my youngest. A father

I do believe that there is hope for a better tomorrow, a better future for you and the people in your life, and all around the world.

Dear Future Children,

I hope that the world you live in now is better than the world I am living in today. Too many years have gone by that have negatively impacted the planet that is so dear to us. The Earth has provided us with land that us humans do not maintain or protect, air that we do not keep clean, and water that we do not conserve. Although mankind has slowly

My hope for the future is that we will love the earth like we love others.

Dear Tomorrow’s Generation,

Every single time I walk into my house I am greeted with a "love is patient, love is hopeful, love is kind" poster. The concept of love is one we all experience in our lives, and while we're good at receiving how good are we at giving it? Giving it especially to what has provided us with the most resources, views, and fun...the earth. My hope for the future is

Today, your promise is to prevent waste, promote education, stay healthy, and live sustainably.

Dear Emma,

You think a lot about how individual acts and lifestyle changes are necessary for people to understand what is they are truly impacting. Research and volunteering can help you to make more positive impacts on the environment, while abandoning old habits that are detrimental to our ecosystem. You want to live waste free, but you can't convince those around you that it's possible. It's the hypocrisy of humanity, but today

I promise to never stop doing what I can to help save the environment in whatever way I can.

Dear Future Generations,

I have live in the city my whole life and I would not think of living in anywhere else. However, when stress gets a little too much to handle, a walk in the park or just taking a trip to the lake calms me down and makes me feel peaceful again. I don’t know what the future will hold but I am hopeful that the future generations can experience these
