International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer

'Our World Needs Us'

The 16th of September is also known as ‘International Day for the preservation of the Ozone Layer or World Ozone Day.’ The day was first officially celebrated in 1995 after it was established by the United Nations. The day is celebrated annually to spread awareness about the planet’s protective layer. In 2006, it was recorded that the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica had extended to over 29 million square kilometres.

Thankfully, in 2019 however it was recorded that the hole had shrunk. This is a promising indication that we are reversing the affects from recent years, but without continued action, it has been estimated that it will not be fully restored until between 2060 and 2075.

Ecofill recognises that the construction industry can play a big part in reducing Co2 Emissions and restoring the earth’s ozone layer. Our brand-new and, sustainable technology, which significantly reduces the export clays and subsoils to landfill and the import of aggregates, allows for less lorry movements to and from site which in turn reduces carbon emissions.

Never before has there been such a focus on a net Zero planet, and with the upcoming COP26 in November, we hope our leaders can find a way to deliver this by 2050. The world is ready for change and so to is the construction industry. We can help deliver this.

Our marketing team created a short video which has been posted across all our social media sites. The video itself, we hope, encourages others to help take care of the planet with our simple message ‘our world needs us’.
