Every one should be responsible for the use and abuse of certain products that have a negative effect on nature.

There are many and simple ways in which we can save our ozone layer. With these simple rules we can create a chain of conciousness that will make manufactures stop creating non-environmentally friendly products.

Habits to care the ozone layer

Let’s this well-known phrase “Any long trip begins with a first step”  be part of our every day life.

  • Avoid buying and using aerosols and sprays composed of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC).
  • "We must demand that the rulers who make policies to care the ozone layer."

  • Avoid using fire extinguishers with halogenated hidrocarbon since it is a very agressive substance for the ozone layer.
  • Avoid buying insulating material made up of CFC. Instead you can use dark chipboard cork that performs the same function and does not contaminate the environment.
  • Maintain air-conditioning clean because if they do not function properly, they emmit CFC to the atmosphere.
  • Check the frezeer and car air-conditioning. If they do not function properly, have them repair because they may have leaks.
  • Opt to buy a refrigerator or an air-conditioning without CFC.
  • Report wether you know that products with bromomethane are used in some sown fields and crops because these substances are contaminating.

Other actions that help reduce air pollution

  • Reduce the use of your car and of other gadgets like compressors, lawn mowers, etc.
  • Arrange an itinerary to save time and money if you have to use your car.
  • Use alternative means of transport: buses, bicycles, or simply walk.
  • Reduce the use of heating and air-conditioning.
  • Buy energy saving gadgets and bulbs. You will reduce levels of pollution and money.

All of us can contribute to the protection of the environment. Before demanding politicians to implement policies to protect the ozone layer, let’s begin ourselves doing something for the environment.
