The ozone layer is a thin part of the Earth's stratosphere that contains a high concentration of ozone. The layer or shield absorbs most of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation. Without protection from the ozone layer, the harmful UV rays can damage several life forms on earth. Thinning of the layer can potentially increase our exposure to several diseases like skin diseases, cancer, cataract, etc.

In current times, several industrial processes or products have caused a serious threat to the ozone layer. Ozone depleting substances such as cholofluorocarbons, hydrocholofluorocarbons, etc., are responsible for depletion of the layer. Without protection from the layer, life on earth will be at great risk.

However, with a few individual efforts and initiatives, one can contribute towards keeping the ozone layer and the environment protected. Little steps like reduced use of private vehicle or air conditioner, planting trees, etc., can go a long way in conserving the environment.

On the occasion of World Ozone Day, share with us any individual effort or initiative you have undertaken or planning to take up in order to protect the environment and prevent depletion of the ozone layer. Submit your responses in the comment section below.
