On my journey I pledge to appreciate nature,
and this I will do with great pleasure.
The wilderness lets me relax and connect,
I promise to treat it with the utmost respect.
Its forests and lakes should remain plastic-free,
so I will not leave any rubbish behind me.

 

 

The cleanest tap water shall quench my thirst,
because in my choices the climate comes first.
In nature, it’s our equal right to roam free,
this should be enjoyed responsibly.
The berries and mushrooms are there to be eaten,
but I’ll stick to the paths that are already beaten.

 

 

Long before humans the wildlife’s been there,
so I won’t set up camp just anywhere.
I shall respect all those around me,
letting everyone enjoy these surroundings equally.
In preserving our nature we all have a part to play,
And this pledge I embrace will show us the way.

Great – you've completed the Pledge along with 9,700 others. You can download it below.
