Dear grandchildren,


You were not born yet, but I’m very concerned about your future. Not just yours, but all our future generations. I’m so proud of you because if you are learning this letter it’s because you are interested in your future and the future of our planet. Unfortunately, now we don’t know how to deal with consumerism. Our planet has been suffering the consequences of our material wills. It’s a shame to see how the human race can do such bad things to have what they want.

So, please love one another. Do not do to others what you wouldn’t like being done with you. If every person in this world could understand this principle, wars, pandemics, poverty, and famine, wouldn’t exist. We are one race, the human race; there is no difference between us. Cultivate a sound mind and do not leave room for bad thoughts. Be careful, everything you sow one day you will reap, whether good or bad.

Now I’m teaching your mom, so she could teach you about these things one day. You are not too small, you can do great things! The creation has a plan for you, a huge purpose. You can make a difference wherever you go! Be brave and kind!

More Messages to the Future


Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?


Dear Tomorrow

I promise to reduce my waste production


To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.


To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.


Dear Gorasia descendants,

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.


Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.


To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.


Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.


To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.


Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,


I pledge to use less plastic.


Dear kids of America,

Please eliminate plastic everything
