????Today humanity uses the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to provide the resources we use and absorb our waste.
‼️This means it now takes the Earth one year and eight months to regenerate what we use in a year.
‼️We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can sequester.
