Take the Pledge



The goal of the Take the Pledge campaign is for fellow “earth champions” to reduce their/our consumption collectively and discover a shared sense of purpose, joy, and satisfaction in doing so.

Why? Because science tells us that the climate crisis isn’t going away. Our environment provides us with renewable and non-renewable resources, but now we take more of both than the planet has to give.

The decisions we make every day—about which products we purchase, how much electricity we consume, how we get around, what we eat and what we don’t—add up and become humanity’s collective carbon footprint. By taking collective action to reduce our consumption and carbon footprint…WE CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING!

When you choose to Take the Pledge, you will receive a link to thought-provoking videos, educational information, tools and practices for taking action, interactive activities, access to webinar recordings, and other inspiring materials to explore in your own time. We invite you to take this journey with us as a unified force!

We are asking you to take joint action on one—or even all five—of the activities below. Together we can make lifestyle changes and build a movement that will make a significant environmental difference!


We are not what we do,
but who we become when we do it.


Take the Pledge

I PLEDGE to participate in the Elders Action Network environmental campaign, to the best of my ability, by taking action on one or more of the following five areas of consumption:


I am willing to buy less new clothing, decline Fast-Fashion and get creative with alternative choices.
I am willing to eat a more plant-rich diet with minimal food waste.
I am willing to use less polluting modes of transportation and purchase fewer transportation-intensive products. I will travel less, opt for electric for my next car, and eat locally produced, seasonally grown foods.
I am willing to reduce electronic waste by not purchasing all the latest electronics and electrical appliances and to repair or replace the ones I have only when they no longer do the job.
I am willing to consider or even commit to other, longer-term significant life changes, for example, making my next vehicle electric, participating in such EAN initiatives as joining a Climate Action Chapter, Electrify Everything, Eliminate Plastics, FixMyFunds.

I take this pledge because there is only:

We are interconnected and interdependent within a living Earth and seek to live congruently with nature in our own lives, our community, and our world with reciprocity, generosity, gratitude, and reverence for all life.

We are all interrelated and interdependent and seek to co-create communities based on mutual respect, kindness, and appreciation of differences.

We aspire to be good ancestors; we live and work from both long and broad perspectives, considering the welfare of all life and the planet for at least seven generations into the future.
