1000 Flowers for the Planet - #610 Observe International Day for Protection of the Ozone Layer
Today is International Day for Preservation of the Ozone Layer. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer. The ozone layer is what protects us from the harmful UV rays of the sun and allows life on earth to survive. It’s a day we can all use individually to stop and reflect on what we are doing on a personal level to protect this layer. Are we avoiding the use of any products that would cause depletion of the ozone? Have we reduced our intake of meat and meat products ? Are we reducing our fossil fuel energy use and consumption or can we do a lot more? What other things can we do to continue to protect the ozone layer for the future? Share your ideas.
