International Ozone Day


Ozone Layer which is about 15-55km away from Planet

earth has been affected due to activities of

mankind for severalyears.

Today the humans have been affected for not protecting the Ozone Layer.
Scientists predict that reflection of ultra violet rays has caused lot of skin diseases and cancer due to the depletion of the Ozone layer, and need more awareness to protect the Ozone layer. 

This was discovered during 1985 with depletion of Ozone layer in the Antarctic region. Gasses such as Nitric Oxide, Methane, Chloro Fluro Carbon have affected the Ozone Layer.

As an initiative to protect the Ozone Layer UNEP organized a summit during 1985 in Vienna in Austria.

In 1997 International Ozone Day was formed and to this day this has been celebrated on September 16th every year.
