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.

A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

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 Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.
