I pledge to be a conscious consumer.
More Messages to the Future
I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.
We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
Less meat, more on my feet!
I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
Dear Future Self,
It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
Dear Jamie and Jason,
My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
To older Rochelle,
You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.
Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.
