My little bit of this big World

Overshoot day

This is an important date. 
Every year it changes, sadly it is earlier most years than the previous year 

 Earth overshoot day is the day we have used all the renewable resources our planet can provide each year, for the rest of this year everything we take won't be naturally replaced. We are killing our planet with our lifestyles, we need to think about the repercussions of our actions, and stop purching stuff, because if we don't want it, it won't be made, it's the only way we can solve this. Governments aren't interested, they benifit from the tax they receive on manufacturing and retail, so it's the people who need to lead this.

Most of everyone who reads my post understands this already, our world needs to survive for our children and their children. 


  1. Thought provoking post, Marlene.

  2. Thank you for alerting us about this day. I am trying hard not to purchase anything extra. My new little house is already full and I don't need anything else, just buying essentials of food or clothes for growing little boys.

  3. I want to say thank you for this post. I did not know about this day and quite agree that we need to be more aware of what we are buying, and what it is doing to our planet.

    God bless.
