Merici College Green Tip #10 - April 5th is Australia's Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day is the date each year when humanity's demand on nature exceeds the Earth's biocapacity.

This date gets earlier each year, meaning that it is taking less time to use up the resources produced by the Earth and that current consumption is taking from the future. 

For 2024, that date is July 27th.

However, as you can see in the diagram below, when broken down by country, Australia's Overshoot Day 2024 is April 5th.
