Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day is August 1, 2018 and marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year.

We are using 1.7 Earths.

We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb.
