  • Perfection is the Enemy of Progress

    Stop Setting Unrealistic Goals. It would be better to have 10 people living an achievable lower waste lifestyle, than one person living a perfectly zero waste lifestyle.

  • Biocapacity

    Biocapacity is the capacity of our environment to regenerate all the resources consumed by the population.

    This includes land, resources, food, water, fuel, housing, etc.

  • Ecological Footprint

    Your Ecological Footprint is a measurement of your sustainability, or lack thereof.

    It is measured into an area of land that is capable of providing all the resources used by an individual at the rate they are being consumed by that person.

    The area of land must also include the waste this person produces.

  • Earth Overshoot Day

    Earth Overshoot Day marks the date we run out of resources!

    The date is marked on the exact day when humanity demands more ecological resources in a given year, exceeding what earth can regenerate in that same year.

    This is caused by a biocapacity deficit.

    A biocapacity deficit occurs when our Ecological Footprint is greater than our biocapacity.

    In other words, we consume more than we can regenerate in that same year.

Global Hectares

Global Hectares are the unit of measurement for biocapacity & ecological footprint.

A global hectare is a biologically productive hectare of land containing the world average biological productivity for a given year.

(how much resources the average hectare of land produces).

To put this into perspective, a hectare is aproximentally the size of a soccer field.

A Global Hectare = 2.5 Acres (2.47)
  • Biocapacity

    The global biocapacity is 1.58 Global Hectares per person.

    Meaning this is the maximum amount of biologically productive land one person can take up (including resources generated) without causing a biocapacity deficit.

  • Ecological Footprint

    The global Ecological Footprint is 2.77 Global Hectares per person.

    Which is well above the global biocapacity.

    An Ecological Footprint that is bigger then the biocapacity is what causes a biocapacity deficit.

    A biocapacity deficit, is what causes Earth Overshoot Day.

71% of Carbon Emissions by 100 companies

For this to change, we need to collectively come together to fight for a more sustainable world.

The first step for real change is change on the individual level. This can be done by supporting sustainable businesses.

When the majority of people live an eco-conscious life, then corporations in power will change their environmental habits.

Is It True 20 Companies Are Responsible for 55% of single-use plastic waste?

Yes! We must both understand and accept that this is out of our control. We cannot control other people, or corporations. In all aspects of life, all we can do is have an impact ourself, as well as encourage and educate others to make the eco-conscious shift.

Your individual impact makes a huge difference. The average person in the U.S produces 4.9 pounds of trash per day! Thats 1,788.5 pounds per year!

You the Consumer Have the Power!

Greenwashing is actually a good sign, think about it!

Why do we see so many companies and products making false sustainability claims?

Because the pressure we are putting on companies is working!

If the majority of consumers are united in switching their purchasing habits, big companies and corporations will soon follow suit.

The only language these big corporations understand is money.

So dont give yours to them!
