A day initiated to raise our awareness. How do you give a positive spin on something that has a fair amount of 'bad news' to it? Simply by focusing on what we can do.
What is it?
First of all it is important to get a clear picture of what - Earth Overshoot Day - actually is.
Teaming with nature
You are reading this article and this indicates that you have a certain degree of awareness towards nature. We only have to come to the realization that the key is found in nature it self. The more we work with nature, the better mother earth will feel. Plant a tree, start a vegetable garden or place some plants on your balcony. That's what everyone can do. The more green the better. Plants are uniquely able to convert solar energy into organic matter, the core of compost and fundamental to healthy soil.
Earth Overshoot Day is the human translation of the symptoms that nature has shown us for several decades. The time has come where we value products that are locally produced. A time where a jar of homemade jam embodies the greatest gift that you can receive on your birthday. We are reconnecting with the earth, grateful for what she gives us ever so unconditionally.
Thank you Mother Earth :-)
