To My Family,

It is 2019 and climate change, sea level rise, over population, high rates of consumption of natural resources and single use products are major topics of discussion. I have reduced my use of single-use plastics by using silicone, metal and paper straws as a substitution. I have quit buying bottles water and invested in a PURfilter. I am taking small steps in my daily life in an attempt to improve the quality of life for future generations and our Earth. I try to share my opinions and ideas with you all in hopes that you will see the small impact that you can have on reducing the unsustainable ways of the world. I promise to continue taking the small steps that hopefully lead to a big change.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.
