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.

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 generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

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.
