Continuing the decline of previous years, Earth Overshoot Day arrived in 2017 (on August 2) a day earlier than in 2016. This is a term used by environmental groups WWF and Global Footprint Network to calculate the day when planet Earth would have used more from nature than it can renew in a whole year.
