Dear Ruth, Fiona, Hayden, Carson, Paige, Ayden, Jack, Myles, & Caroline,

Of all the acts we can do to slow down climate change and preserve the planet, so far the residents of the United States are failing miserably at the easiest and most basic act: eliminating litter. Of all the countries I have visited, my own country is most disgraced by the amount of litter across this nation. It demonstrates disregard and thoughtlessness for one’s own behavior and impact on the planet. We must improve our endeavor to raise consciousness about this very basic element for saving the earth. Awareness at that level is where it has to begin with our youngest citizens. Please pledge to be role models in eliminating litter.

Love,
Aunt Elaine
