Dear Future Self,

How’s life? An article just came out saying we have 12 years to change our habits before extreme weather happens. How’s everything? Were they right? Right now I’m being as reusable as I can be. Never use a plastic bag! Has there been inventions that were environmentally friendly that has helped us move to a trash free world? I hope you’re still not eating meat! This month (November 2018) marks 1 year of being pescatarian! Keep going strong! Make sure the kids eat healthy too. Ever since I was a kid I always loved the environment and animals. The dream is to be rich enough to purchase land and turn it into either a sanctuary or keep it for the wildlife. Hopefully you found a way in your company to give back to the environment or start programs to help. You got this. I believe in you.

Best

Rachel
