You have probably heard of terms such as “sustainability, ecological, eco-responsible, sustainable fashion..” one or too many times and probably questioned its meaning or didn't care about it much.
Well if you don't know that we're currently living in a time of a climate crisis, or you've been living in planet mars all this time maybe, then hello, welcome to planet earth, it's time to wake up.
Climate change is a transversal issue that has been a hot topic in debates worldwide and its influence on biological processes occurs on regional, continental, and global scales.
Every year, the NGO Global Footprint Network calculates Overshoot Day based on three million statistical data from 200 countries. It is the date on which the ecological footprint exceeds the planet's biocapacity.
In other words, the day we caught more fish, cut down more trees, built and farmed more land than nature can provide in a year. It also marks the day when our greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels will have been greater than our oceans and forests can absorb.
