#WorldOzoneDay

Today marks the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. It’s celebrated each year on the 16th of September to commemorate the day the Montreal Protocol was signed back in 1997, by the UN General Assembly.

This year’s theme is ” Ozone and climate: Restored by a world united.”

The day’s main intention is to create and spread awareness of the depletion of the Ozone Layer and the quest for concrete solutions in its preservation; not with the corrosive emission of toxic waste in the air, which gets to the Ozone Layer, which in turn affects the human race and the environment.

”The phaseout of controlled uses of ozone depleting substances and the related reductions have not only helped protect the ozone layer for this and future generations, but have also contributed significantly to global efforts to address climate change; furthermore, it has protected human health and ecosystems by limiting the harmful ultraviolet radiation from reaching the earth.”…. http://www.un.org

Let’s join hands in working to preserve the Ozone Layer and encourage everyone to recycle.
