Earth overshoot day 2021 marks the day what resources earth can regenerate. In other words, humans are using nature 1.75 times faster than Earth’s ecosystems can regenerate.
This means that in just seven months, humans depleted the amount of clean water, healthy soil, clean air and other resources that the planet generated in 2021, meaning that all of the energy we consume from now until December 31st will be on a borrowed level from the year 2022 which is no longer sustainable in the long term.
The extra waste we now produce cannot be absorbed and will cause harm and we are using too many other natural resources – like eating fish, plant-based food and meat – too quickly. #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day
