I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

To my precious children

Today, we had to wash your feet before you could come in the house. The dirt covered your legs and streaked your arms.
This is the childhood you should have. You should not be constantly on the lookout for evidence of pollution. I want your childhood to me marked by peace and beauty as we explore this world together.
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children. So for this reason, I continue to work to get others to see that a day in the sun, playing is far more valuable than all the money that could ever be generated by our wasteful consumerism.
For a future like this my heart aches so deeply. For a clean future that brings freckles on your noses and the smell of sunshine in your hair.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Our Promise
