Earth Overshoot Day

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:39 pm on 23 July 2019

Next Monday is Earth Overshoot Day. That's the day when we've used up a year's worth of resources. 

It's a global average - New Zealand hit its overshoot day back in May. Every year the day gets closer and this year it's earlier than ever before. 

So how do we push that day out and why does it matter? We talk to Claire Insley from the Vegan society.
