Pledge for Responsible Tomorrows
I pledge to make changes in my own life that will preserve our state and our planet for our children and grandchildren. While the challenges are clear, I know that by joining with EarthShare New Jersey, its member partners, and individual members and donors, I am amplifying the power of one by becoming one of many who pledge to:

· Learn about, respect and protect natural environments and the wildlife that inhabit it

· Reduce my energy consumption and choose renewable sources where I can

· Reduce my consumption of single-use materials, choosing reusable options and educating myself on the correct way to recycle various materials

· Educate others about the urgency of taking action and help them to take the next step, including signing this pledge

Below, I have checked all actions that I am already taking to live a more sustainable lifestyle; in addition, I have checked at least one new behavior in each of the four categories, which are aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), that I will pledge to undertake within the next year:
