Dear Future Me,

I hope that you are doing well, and I hope that the planet is in livable condition. Unfortunately, I really don’t think it is. I know I’ve tried to live an environmentally friendly life, but I know you think I could have and should have done more. I hope you can forgive me for my ignorance and inability to start caring about the earth sooner. I also hope you can forgive me for not doing enough.

I took a sustainability class in 2017, which was really the first time I learned about how to live to save the place we live. I had already been living 20 years of my life hurting the earth. From then on, I tried my best to take care of this planet, for you and for your family, but it was never enough.

I worry that by the time you read this, the world will be in complete shambles. People aren’t changing their way of living enough, or fast enough, and I fear the damage we have done is irreversible. I wish people would think about you more; maybe they would realize there is more to life than just now. More to life than the newest shoes, a big t.v., a fancy car. Material things won’t help you, or save our planet. I wish we all understood this and took action sooner, but all we have is now.

I hope you continue to live in an ecofriendly way. I hope you consume only what you need, and I hope you have found your voice to spread awareness of the importance of living an environmentally friendly life. I’m sorry I couldn’t do more sooner, but I hope you always continue to do more and more to help our planet.

Sincerely,

Tess
