Earth Overshoot Day: Letters & Day of Action
Time & Location
About The Event
EARTH OVERSHOOT DAY NH
Join ECHO Action as we participate in Earth Overshoot Day, raising awareness about the rate which we use Earth's natural resources.
"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.
We are using 1.7 Earths. We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb." https://www.overshootday.org/"
WHAT'S EARTH OVERSHOOT DAY?
MOVE THE DATE
“Ultimately, moving back the date of Earth Overshoot Day on the calendar is the name of the game. For instance, cutting food waste by 50% worldwide could move the date by 11 days; reducing the carbon component of the global Ecological Footprint by 50% would move the date of Overshoot Day by 89 days."
