Dear Mark,

Many, many years ago I was an avid smoker; at least 2 packs a day. I was always diligent in NOT throwing the butts on the ground. Walking around my neighborhood I see the ground littered with cigarette butts. Where do they go? Washed down the street drains, eventually ending in the waterways/ocean. They are not biodegradable but are harmful to the Ecosystem. Please, please dispose of the butts or carry a personal ashtray; a zippered pouch that can eventually be emptied into an appropriate receptical.

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 Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

 

Dear Zhengqing Gao,

Fortunately, you didn’t get injured while the wildfire burned your school.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.
