Every year on September 16, International Day for the Prevention of the Ozone Layer is celebrated by the United Nations. The event is reminiscent of the 1987 Montreal Protocol, which was co-created by 24 countries. In Montreal, these countries told the world to stop ruining the ozone layer. It promised to stop using such substances, which damages the ozone layer. On 19 December 1994, the UN General Assembly decided on 16 September to celebrate the International Day for the Defense of the Ozone Layer. The first Ozone Day was observed on 16 September 1995.

There was a four-month strict lockdown to control the coronavirus. Some strict rules are still in force today. Due to this, the level of pollution declined and this has further increased the importance of Ozone Day. A study by the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun, found that the lockdown resulted in a shortage of ozone-depleting substances and this increased the quality of the ozone layer by 1.5 to two times.
