#MOVETHEDATE - Earth's Overshoot Day

The good folks over at New Society Publishers are doing their part to raise awareness about climate change, and our relationship with the environment. Ecological Footprintwritten by Mathis Wackernagel and Bert Beyers. Earth's Overshoot Day, according to a quote on New Society's website, "marks the date when humanity’s annual demand on nature exceeds what Earth’s ecosystems can regenerate in that year." In 2019, Earth's Overshoot Day was July 29th - the earliest ever. It's a natural reaction to feel individually dwarfed by the global crisis of climate change, but there are ways to help! Every little thing you do matters. If you want to check out some steps to move the date, follow the link here - and if you want an extended overview of the whole situation, check out and explore. Blessings to you, fellow Earthling! We're all in this together.
