Today Is World Ozone Day: 3 Ways By Which We Can Preserve The Earth

Today, 16 September 2019 we are celebrating 32 years of the World Ozone Day. As we all know that the ozone layer is the blanket that shields the Earth from the harmful effects of UV rays. Knowing the importance of this layer, 32 years ago 197 countries signed a treaty. The people decided to phase out the products that affect the ozone layer.

The date was commemorated by the Montreal Protocol on things that deplete the Ozone Layer. It was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1994.

The size of the ‘Ozone Hole’ has been reduced significantly since the 1900s. Therefore the theme for this year’s celebration of World Ozone Day is ’32 Years And Healing’.
