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 consciousness that will make manufactures stop creating non-environmentally friendly products.

Habits that will take care of the ozone layer

Let 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 that contain chlorofluorocarbon (CFC).

·        Avoid using fire extinguishers with halogenated hydrocarbon since it is a very aggressive substance for the ozone layer.

·        Avoid buying insulating material made of CFC. Instead you can use dark chipboard cork that performs the same function and does not contaminate the environment.

·        Maintain air-conditioning units because if they do not function properly, they emit CFC to the atmosphere.

·        Check the freezer and car air-conditioning. If they do not function properly, get them repaired because they may have leaks.

·        Opt to buy a refrigerator or an air-conditioning unit without CFC.

·        Report whether 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.
