Earth Overshoot Day is Sept 27th each year.

Earth Overshoot Day is coming!:

Earth Overshoot Day is today, September 27th. Essentially, today, we have used up a years worth of the world's resource-generation capacity. Every day for the rest of the year takes us into deficit.

Or, stated differently, every year we are using 130%+ of the earths renewable resources. We deplete or exhaust resources in order to overconsume.

Video is interesting too.
