More Messages to the Future
A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
Dear Future Afnan,
You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.
I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.
I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.
My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).
I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.
I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.
To earth & its inhabitants,
Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.
