Transcript of Ozone Depletion
The ozone layer is a very important part of our everyday life. You may not notice, but it is. Without it, life on Earth would be almost impossible. It filters the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation, helping us live.
What's happening with the ozone layer?
When we once produced CFC's and other chemicals, these chemicals caused the ozone layer to deplete. Most countries agreed to stop producing CFC's in 1987. But even if we ban them in all countries, the chemicals will stay in the atmosphere for approximately 100 years.
What can you do to reduce ozone depletion?
You as an individual can help in reducing ozone depletion. You can unplug electronics when not in use, plant a tree, remember that it is illegal to recharge refrigerators, freezers and home/vehicle air conditioners with CFC's, check your vehicle by a qualified technician so they can capture and recycle the CFC, and use bicycles instead of cars, or walk.These are ways you help out as an individual.
Wait! That's not all!
Don't forget, boys and girls around the world can make a difference. Because when it comes to protecting the environment, every little action counts.
