Thoughts on Earth Overshoot Day

Earth is majestic. And we must treat her as such. 🌏 Today is Earth Overshoot Day, which means we have used all of the resources our planet is able to renew in the entire year… in only seven months. Our consumption of ecological resources is far greater than that which nature can regenerate. This is a massive problem. In 1985, we were in line with global capacities and ever since, humanity has been increasingly over-consuming, more rapidly each year — and this year, the date is the earliest it’s ever been. Conserve. Sustain. Safeguard. Honor. Steward. Respect. I’m practicing what I preach on organic farms that champion regenerative agriculture and true sustainability here in Puerto Rico and beyond. #madretierra
