How might you ask?  Well here's how!

Reducing the use of products that use CFC's is a major help in the increase of the ozone molecule.  Also, car emissions and soot from factories and smokestacks can destroy hundreds and thousands of ozone molecules daily.  This can be solved by using public transportation, or an alternate form of transportation such as  walking, running, or biking.  These also help your body =).  Also using alternative enery sources such as geothermal power, hydroelectric power, or wind power can help reduce the emissions that destroy the molecule.

The government has also taken a stand on the issue.  Several treaties, agreements, and kaws have been passed to reduce ozone depletion.  One of these is the Montreal Protocal, which is an international agreement that helps to reduce the production of chemicals that deplete the ozone layer.  The European governments have also taken a stand on this issue.  The European Union has created regulations that ban CFC's and harmful chemicals from production.
