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

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?

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will work to restore the wetlands.

 

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.

 

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
