Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

You may not know me & I probably don’t know you, but I think we both have the same idea:  we have to do something about our Earth. If we don’t do something soon, we won’t be able to get our Earth back, no matter how much we try. This sucks and you probably hear this all of the time, but it really shouldn’t discourage you. I am 17 & a senior in high school right now & I think I have been hearing this all of my life, but now I am trying to be the change I want to see in the world. That saying is really cheesy – it is, I got it from some motivational poster– but it is very true. Small things like picking up after yourself, recycling the correct things, doing your research, really anything can help. You can count on me doing part, so I hope I can count on you too. I know that we can do it if we all just start to pitch in and do our part. Doesn’t matter how old you are, your level of intellect, or your income; we can all do something because this Earth is our home. If you look at the picture I attached you will see how beautiful the ocean looks. Now what would happen if it filled with a bunch of plastic objects, not so beautiful anymore. Let’s pick up after ourselves, let’s do our part. I know that if we all help, even if it’s a little, we’ll be able to save our home.

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

More Messages to the Future


Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).


Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.


To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.


Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.


Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.


We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.


Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often


Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.


To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.


Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.
