Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day reminds people about the negative effects of modern living on the planet. It is the point in each Gregorian year when human consumption exceeds earth’s capacity to replace these resources. Earth Overshoot Day falls at the end each calendar year, if there is a sustainable level of consumption.

It is difficult to calculate all the resources on the planet and their actual use. This Day’s placement should therefore be taken with a grain of salt. It serves to remind us that we are living well beyond our means.

Earth Overshoot Day is also known as Earth Day. It’s a great time to organize conservation campaigns, promote sustainable living, and implement more eco-friendly lifestyle choices. Find a local environmental problem and rally your community behind it.
