Screen Shot 2019-07-26 at 9.09.52 AMToday’s the day. Earth Overshoot Day. July 29, the earliest it has ever been. It marks the date when “humanity’s demand ecological resources (fish and forests, for example) and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year.” 

From now until December 31, we’re living beyond our means. 

The KLA Team is joining the #MoveTheDate movement by posting our selfie photos and videos about why we need to move the date and the steps we’re taking to get there. 

Watch below! 

You can do the same (tips here) -- it’s easy just add #MoveTheDate!

Some of us are with our kids, others are traveling in some of our country's most beautiful places and others posed with the wheelbarrow they are repairing and salvaging instead of buying new.
