Dear Future Generations,

It is hard for me to imagine what the world might look like in 50 years. Is it as I hoped or as I have feared? Are you reading this letter in a world where deforestation has continued beyond control, water levels have risen to a point where islands and coastal cities are no longer habitable? Or, is it a world where rainforests and ice caps still exists, coral reefs have not completely disappeared, and the species that are endangered today are not extinct? Sitting here writing this letter in 2017, I am hoping for the latter. I hope that you are reading this letter from the porch of your urban sustainable apartment building or your rural home powered only by alternative energy.

While there are many hopes and wishes I have for future generations, I can not tell you how to live. It is easy for me to sit here and tell you to make sure you are eating sustainably and limiting your usage of fossil fuels, but right now I have no idea what the world looks like as you read this letter. Maybe I do not need to tell you that. Maybe the shift away from unsustainable dairy and meat consumption and agricultural practices is more widespread than today. In addition to that, maybe coal and other fossil fuels are no longer in circulation as all new cars are electric and homes and buildings are powered by alternative energies. These are all things I could hope for but in the end I just hope that whatever world you are living in, you are conscious of the repercussion that your decisions have on the environment and the world around you. I hope that you continue to make yourself aware of the world around you beyond what they teach in schools.

I promise that I will continue to try and live my life in a way that is sustainable. I will continue to learn and work with those around me to create a world for future generations that you all deserve, considering many of the problems you may be dealing with are not always your generations fault. I apologize that so many people of my generation act and make decisions despite the knowledge of so many of the negative repercussions.

Be careful and maintain hope!

Thank you

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

As consumers, it is our duty to protest and force companies to be greener and avoid environmental damage, whether they are from the food industry or from any other production industry. It’s about time we start thinking greener.
