So, yesterday was Earth Overshoot Day….
Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s annual demands on nature exceed what Earth can regenerate in that year (- see more here). Makes you think, doesn’t it? It made me think… In eight months we’ve used up nature’s budget for the whole year – How?! How can we keep up consuming like this?! and why are we doing it?! I absolutely LOVE fashion, but it’s taking such a toll on the planet, and future generations are going to think of us as crazy people for not taking care of the one thing we all depend on – our planet!
This fall I’m going to be especially conscious of what I add to my wardrobe. How has it been produced? Do I really need it? Is it something I will love for a long time? and how can it be recycled?
Let’s be conscious of our consumption and part of the change – Let’s not make Earth Overshoot Day 2016 fall earlier than this year. It was too soon.
