Breathing ground-level ozone can trigger a variety of health problems including chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and congestion. It can worsen bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma. Ozone also can reduce lung function and inflame the lining of the lungs.

Chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs are the main cause of ozone layer depletion. These are released by solvents, spray aerosols, refrigerators, air-conditioners, etc.

Through combined efforts we can contribute our share to keep up the ozone layer intact. The few changes in our routine which will help are –

  • Reduce emissions from factories and automobiles.
  • Meet most of your energy requirements from renewable sources.
  • Do not destroy forests.
  • Use bio-degradable polymers.
  • Plant more trees.
  • Stop using CFC’s.
  • Use car pooling and public transport.

Don’t destroy the nature and it will give you all that you need.
