What Is Earth Overshoot Day?

“Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year.”

Today is the calculated Earth Overshoot Day, an initiative from our friends at the Global Footprint Network, where we have used more resources than our planet currently offers. Watch the video below to get a better idea of exactly what this means.

Emilygrene Corp. is proud to support the Global Footprint Network in their efforts to change the way the world measures and manages its natural resources. The images below show how we have increased the amount of natural resources used in a year.
