I pledge not to use straws + to use LESS PLASTIC. Reuse! Recycle!
More Messages to the Future
I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
Dear Beloved Children,
As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.
To our future generations,
I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.
I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!
Dear future me,
I am 19 years old, and I am angry.
I vow that I will try to make a difference every day, so that you may enjoy the world as I have.
I love you and I care deeply about your future.
My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.
You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.
Dear Nieces and Nephews,
I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
