In 2016 the world's population exhausted in 1 year 60% more resources than the Earth's renewable capacity. In other words, what WE consumed in a year will have taken the Earth 19 months to regenerate! According to the Global Footprint Network, If the entire world were to consume at the rate we do in the US, we would need 4.8 Earths! By today's population increase and consumption rate, in the year 2050 there will be apx. 9 Billion people in the world, consuming 3 times more than what mother nature can supply. We'll basically need 3 worlds to live in!
This dramatic introduction leads us to the simple, non-arguable realization that what we consume and the manner in which we consume have immense impact on our own health and the health of our environment. Today, more and more conscious individuals are shifting toward a responsibly planned and sustainable lifestyle, accounting for what they intake as well as for what they leave behind.
