Overpopulation causes over consumption Overpopulation Over Consumption We are using too much of Earth’s natural resources and we are not giving it back.
We are taking and not giving it back, which means at one point nature is going to be empty with nothing else to give.

So be sustainable: "USE IT BUT DON'T USE IT UP" What can we do? GREEN CONSUMPTION Recycling
