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 the impact my actions have on the earth and how I can make choices that reduce my footprint and waste and also influence others to start thinking in a similar direction. Our generation has the responsibility to do something about the changes we are now seeing on our planet and create an awareness for sustainability. The earth existed for hundreds of years without humans; it does not need us to survive. What people forget at times is that we are nothing without the earth; humankind relies on the planet and it is essential to our survival. We need the earth to survive; but it doesn’t need us. We must make decisions that coexist with that belief and that set us on the path to preserve the planet for generations to come.

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
