I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to do my part to try and help protect the planet from the ravages of climate change. I will vote for candidates that are pro-environment, and rally against those who are not. I will minimize the use of products and chemicals that harm the environment and exacerbate the situation. As time and money allows, I will make my home more environmentally-friendly, and make my yard more wildlife and planet friendly. I will purchase the most energy-efficient vehicles and appliances that I can afford, and always take the environment into consideration when making purchasing and travel plans.

As the Native American proverb states, “We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.” I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.
