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 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.

Whether or not others have started to enact change I hope that you all will commit yourselves to learning and improving the world, environmentally and socially. I believe that real change is only possible when many perspectives are expressed and integrated into a collective effort or will of all people working unselfishly for the betterment of all, so don’t be afraid to say what you think!

Today, I promise to do my part to protect what we have now by re-using and up-cycling products like clothing, supporting local sustainable farms, and limiting my pollution in order to preserve it for you to know and improve.
