To my grandkids,

This is pop pop jack. Year is 2017 and things are getting wild. The ocean is rising, dunes are eroding and the place we call home on cape cod could be drastically different one day. One thing I did to step up was to stop using plastic water bottle and use reusable bottles and glasses. Also, I tried to unplug all unused stuff around the house. This def made some people angry.

Best of luck,

J

More Messages to the Future

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will opt up to deep green

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear tomorrow,

The blue sky will no longer be grey, and the bleak clouds will be vibrant.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.
