Earth Overshoot Day

How long would a years supply of our planet’s resources last, if every country woke up on January 1st 2019 and consumed like the UK? 137 days.  Today is day 137. Today, we would need a whole new planet. To make it through a full year, we would need 2.66 planets.

If we #MoveTheDate by 5 days each year, we will be living on less than one planet per year before 2050.  Change is possible. Sustainability is possible.

Changing the way we produce, distribute, and consume food is one of the four solutions to our problem.  At the Food Forest Project we are working hard to be part of the solution. By planting local food forests we are helping to feed people sustainably, and are giving back to the planet by providing the trees it needs.  We work at a community level, empowering people to live sustainably. Our projects give people from all walks of life the opportunity to reconnect with nature. By supporting our work you are aligning yourself with the solution.  You can make a difference.

We’d love to see what you’re doing to help humanity live within its means. Use #MoveTheDate and tag us @FoodForestProj to share your sustainable choices!
