More Messages to the Future
More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet.
To my dear son Zac,
I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.
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?
Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
I promise to stop eating beef.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
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 take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.
Dear Rowan and Anaka,

Less meat, more on my feet!
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.
