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?
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.
Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.
To you, my dear!

To my daughter and her children,
As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.
I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see
I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.
Dear Future Self,
It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
Rachel and Noelle,
I hope in a small way this helps your world.
