September 16 is the International Day of Preservation of the Ozone Layer.
Every year on September 16, the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness of the depletion of the ozone layer and promote action to protect and preserve it.
The ozone layer is a fragile gas shield in the Earth's stratosphere that protects us from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. However, the ozone layer has been significantly damaged by human activities, such as the release of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other ozone-depleting substances.
In response to this problem, the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer was adopted in 1987. It is an international treaty aimed at phasing out the production and use of ozone-depleting substances such as CFCs. The protocol has been successful in reducing the production and consumption of these harmful substances.
