Year 2024. The Earth's population has already passed the critical threshold of 7,9 billion people; this means an ever-increasing consumption in recent decades, especially in industrialized and developed areas.

Consumption means comfort and a better life for many people, but for the planet it also means drained resources. Many reports from international institutions show that we're at a critical juncture, where if we fail to change the way we consume in order to become sustainable in the long run, we may face severe situations.
