Our appetite for arable land is out of control, and as a result we face rampant deforestation. We lose 18.7 million acres of forests per year—that's 27 soccer fields every minute.
We use nearly 9 billion tons of fresh water every day, much faster than nature can replenish it, and one in four people face a looming water crisis.
A ‘use-it-and-lose-it’ culture is building literal mountains and oceans of trash, most of which will never be recycled. Plastic microfibres are found in most drinking water.
We use about five and a half billion pounds of pesticides every year and two out of every five hectares of land is degraded or contaminated.
Making real change is an immense and multifaceted task.
