When Freon was first developed in 1928, we knew significantly less about its impact on the environment. Because it was not flammable, toxic, or corrosive, and because it was odorless, it was seen as a safe and healthy option for the general public to use.
Over the decades, however, as the link between Freon and the deterioration of the environment became clear, scientists were able to show how wide Freon use led to harmful global side effects. In addition to protecting the world from harmful UV rays from the sun, the ozone layer also helps maintain a healthy atmosphere for the earth. Because we want to see our planet continue to flourish, we're happy to make the adjustments we need to make in order to ensure a safe and healthy planet for ourselves and for future generations.
