Earth Overshoot Day (EOD) is the calculated illustrative calendar date on which humanity’s resource consumption for the year exceeds Earth’s capacity to regenerate those resources that year. This year it lands on July 29, 2021. That means we have consumed humanity’s resources one month earlier than last year!You can know more about past Earth Overshoot Day from this linkwww.overshootday.org/newsroom/past-earth-overshoot-days/We at Devilag Service Office, SureMap Project, and SEKEM are working on a better sustainable future. With a clear vision and goals, we will create an impact! Together we can create sustainable consumption.#SEKEMvision2030#Devilage#SureMap#OvershootDay#SustainableConsumption #SDGgoals
