To my future children,

Climate change is a topic of the now in 2017. While it is of debate by many politicians, the average American agrees that climate change is caused by human behavior and going to have devastating impacts on the future. Most likely, you are living in this future that seems so distant now. In an attempt to make this world as pleasant for you as possible, I am doing my part to reduce my carbon footprint now. Some of these actions that I am taking or hoping to take is buying used electric vehicles, reducing my use of one-time plastics, being mindful of my energy use, and working for conservation agencies to protect forests and wildlife for you to enjoy.

It is my hope that you get to see the world for its natural beauty as I have. Every generation of people born sees a different, more impacted and less diverse natural world. The natural world that I see now is different from the natural world that my grandparents saw. The same is true for the world that you see versus what I see now. I am hoping that eventually this cycle ends, before there is no diversity or true pure natural beauty left.

We share this planet with past, present and future generations. What we do now, what has been done in the past all matters to the future. It is my hope that my generation continues to recognize the fact, and act on it, for you.

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.
