Earth Overshoot Day 2016, earlier than ever



On August 8th 2016, humanity will have used up nature’s budget for the entire year according to the Global Footprint Network, an international sustainability think tank led by Club of Rome member Mathis Wackernagel.

Since 1970, Earth Overshoot Day has been changing date with a general tendency to come earlier in the year, this year will be a record though.

But there is some good news too and plenty of opportunities to act for reducing humanity’s ecological footprint.
