Save the Ozone Layer

How the Hole in the Ozone is Created

The ozone hole if formed during the winter when there are high winds where chlorine and greenhouse gases build up, then when there is sun there is a reaction and it removes a 10-15 mile layer of the ozone. This shows that by using more products with chlorine in them it will cause higher increase in the ozone decreasing, so to help save the ozone we should use less products with chlorine and greenhouse gases.

Working Together to Save the Ozone

Achim Steiner who is the UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) claims that if all nations came together agreeing on investment and technology, and work peacefully with one another they could protect the ozone layer and do great things.
