I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

Dear Future Me,

I love taking long walks through the woods with my dog. He enjoys being taken off the leash and running around chasing his favorite tennis ball. Seeing him happy makes me happy.

The woods have always been one of my favorite places to be. It brings me serenity and helps me stay connected with nature. But, a lot of our actions are impacting the trees, such as our diet. I want to be able to enjoy the beautiful and healthy woods in the future, just like I do now with my dog.

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees. I will eat less meat to reduce the amount of forests being cut down for ranches and agriculture. I will be sure to vote for people in power who consider and act upon the environmental issues. I will use less paper. And, I promise I will plant a tree.
