Welcome to The 200 Year Project! We are thrilled you stopped in!
Have you ever wondered what the world will be like when your grandchildren reach the age you are now? How their environment will be? Their health? Their society? Technology? How about their grandchildren when they are your age? And then what about theirs? In about 200 years our grandchildren’s grandchildren will be finishing their time on this planet. Today may be 2017, but everything we do is shaping their 2217.
What will the world look like in 200 years?
200 Years seems so far away, but yet our grandchildren's grandchildren will just be finishing their life here on earth. 200 Years ago Abraham Lincoln was a child, Independence Day was only 40 years old, America had only 10 Million inhabitants (size of NYC) and the first photograph had just been taken.
FIND OUT HOW WE CAN HELP THEIR FUTURE
At the 200 Year Project we are focused on providing step by step actions and Informational Resources for Individuals on their way to building their more sustainable world - a world our grandchildren and their grandchildren will inherit.
WE ARE DEDICATED TO:
We have a myriad of tips and steps for you to limit your daily waste and to find sustainable, chemical free ways of living. We find good companies that you can trust without hesitation, that follow eco friendly and sustainable ways. Our tips are not only better for the environment, but also for your health and your wallet!
CHECK OUT OUR ZERO WASTE HUB
Small and big steps are applauded as we encourage a more ethical, sustainable and cruelty free way of living. We want to be a Beacon of Hope to the future as well as others and provide encouraging news in order to motivate everyone to keep going and show that their daily actions do matter!
CHECK OUT OUR VEGAN BEACONS
Think of all the possibilities and opportunities we have to shape the future of our world. The Revolutionary War had just ended a few years ago, James Madison was president and women had no rights. We have come far! Imagine the possibilities 200 years from today.

Why is it important to imagine 200 Years?
In 200 years, we can be our grandchildren’s grandchildren’s heroes or villains. We can be their long lost idols and inspirations or we can be forgotten with a simple Command+Shift+Delete. Their future is being built by our present. Their lives are currently in our hands.
What do we do that is of Value to our Visitors?
The 200 Year Project provides inspiration and tangible tips, experiences and calls to action geared toward individuals. It takes time to shape our world positively, and so we encourage individuals to start shaping their world one step at a time. We do look into the big picture, but we believe every small step forward is an integral part of the puzzle.
WHY WE CHOSE 200 YEARS
The reason we chose 200 years instead of 100 or another is because 200 gives us enough distance to remain objective and imaginative about a time and space none of us will physically exist in. 200 years helps us ponder and wonder and imagine a world worthy of the innocent generations that will come after ours.
The reason we call this a Project is because every day is a work in progress, now and forever. Perfection is substituted by persistence as part of our equation. We are working to improve day in and day out, as every step forward is a positive part of the process. We work to live our lives not just for our children and their children, but for theirs and then theirs too.
We will never get to meet that 6th generation when they are held gently in their mother's arms. But, we can be a part of the foundation that gives them clean air, proper food and a wealth of opportunity to continue building a world that benefits the future of all life on earth.
200 years may seem distant and untouchable today, but every step we take in its direction, our grandchildren's grandchildren feel the weight of our walk. We have a wonderful opportunity to be heroes in their eyes, if we are willing to journey through our own lives with theirs in mind.
