ReThink – NOW!

Today is “Earth Overshoot Day”!

That means that we already have used up all of this years resources and are from this day forward stealing from future generations!
Earth simply can’t regenerate itself fast enough.

Just 50 years ago we managed with less than the available resources. Now Earth Overshoot Day arrives earlier every year, because our wonderfully designed economic system is based on infinite growth while it has not realized that the earth is finite….
In 2017 “Earth Overshoot Day” comes 6 days earlier than last year…

It’s time to ReThink!

Make yourself aware what you buy, what you throw away, where you drive or where you fly and try to minimize your ecological footprint!
