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.

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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.

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
