To my future kids and the kids of the future,

If I have you or not I still want to make the promise that I will do all I can to make the world a better place for you to live and have your own families in.

I am part of the first generation that can feel the effects of overconsumption and see how that abuse is changing the world around me. I also know that I am part of the last generation that will be able to do anything to help reign in the effects for future generations.

I want to talk to you about sustainability and how the way that my generation approaches it and how I hope that we will change that. Currently we see sustainability as just a word, it is a buzzword and because of this word has really lost its weight and meaning. As a society we have forgotten that the actions we take now will affect the generations that exist after us.

To me sustainability is the ability to provide for the current generations without inhibiting future generations to provide for themselves. I am to live my life remembering that all i do effects those ahead of me. Hopefully people will begin to realise that if we do not live within our generations’ means it will affect the economy and society as a whole.

I personally have decided to make the transition into being vegan so that I can lower my carbon footprint, I am pesciterian right now but hopefully soon I will have totally transitioned. I also started using shampoo bars and conditioner bars to minimize plastic use in my bathroom, the only plastic in there now is my face stuff. Everytime someone asks me about things like this I ask them if they want me to go with them to find these things and make recommendations and i like to talk about it to keep people informed. I am not perfect at zero waste but that okay as long as we started to work as a whole society to get there.

I promise to keep working and to keep trying.

I love you lots and I hope your future holds so much for you.
