The ozone layer is a protective cover for the earth. It prevents harmful UV rays from entering the earth as these rays harmful and can result in skin cancer. But the air pollutants like chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are the main reason for the depletion of the ozone layer. Too many UV rays are harmful to plants as they affect photosynthesis, destroy planktons and decomposers. These are the reasons why damage to the ozone layer a cause of concern.

Steps taken to limit is many developing and developed countries have signed and are obeying the directions of TINEP (United Nations Environment Programme) to freeze or limit the production and usage of CFCs.
