Some appliances contain ozone depleting substances such as Freon. These substances, if released to the environment, destroy the protective ozone layer above the earth. More modern refrigerators and freezers manufactured since 1994 contain ozone friendly replacement hydrofluorcarbons. By 2003 all new refrigerators and freezers were manufactured without ozone depleting substances. However, the ozone friendly refrigerants still need careful handling to reduce damage to the atmosphere.
