Dear Future Self,

The planet is dying. I hope that my future self looks back on the past and feels that I’ve made a difference. Of course, there are simple things I could do, like compost and recycle, but it does not end there. It is important that throughout my life I spread the word, and educate myself on the environment and the effects of pollution. I want to make a contribution. Throughout my life, I will not use plastic straws, plastic bags in grocery stores or plastic water bottles, and I will encourage my peers to do the same. For me, surrounding myself with people that are like-minded in wanted to be apart of the process of saving the world, is important. It is crazy to think that my species might be the cause of the 7th mass extinction and I do not want to live in a world where I am adding to the cause of this. I hope that my future self looks back and can be proud of the progress I’ve made so that there can be a world where my grandchildren live.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.
