Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity's demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what our planet can regenerate for that entire year. This year, it fell on July 29, which means that humans currently use 74 percent more resources than what the planet can regenerate.
In this episode, Laura speaks with Sarah Baillie, the population and sustainability organizer at the Center for Biological Diversity, about how our everyday consumption plays a role, what we can do to ensure our resources are sustained, and more.
