Dear Asher,

When I imagine your future, I imagine limitless possibilities, joy, love, and meaningful connections. I imagine you contributing to the world in ways that promote a level playing field, social justice, and positive change.

Your father and I worry about the way humans treat the earth. It’s why we have the cars we do, why we use the diapers we do for you, and why we eat the way we do. It’s why we try to recycle as much as possible, and compost, and buy used when we can. But we know there is still more we can do. We worry that we don’t do enough for climate change. We worry the world ignores climate change.

We hope to try to live more simply by buying less, growing more of our own food, talking to you about caring for the earth, and driving less.

All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.

your mama, Lizz
