The ozone layer is made up of a type of oxygen that can protect us from the most harmful UV rays, however, this type of oxygen is easily destroyed by man-made chemicals. Currently, we are facing the challenge of a thinning ozone due to our man-made chemicals. The consequences of not having an ozone layer can vary from sunburn to skin cancer, to a planet-wide temperature change. Our ozone serves a very important purpose, and it is necessary that we do our part in protecting it.
