Yes, all plants, animals, and people are effected.
The ozone layer is unique to the Earth because it absorbs UV rays, giving us a breathable atmosphere.
We must all contribute to saving the ozone layer.

Chlorofluorocarbons are involved in a catalytic reaction CFCl3 + UV Light ==> CFCl2 + Cl Cl + O3 ==> ClO + O2 ClO + O ==> Cl + O2 Cl + O3 ==> ClO + O2 ClO + O ==> Cl + O2
Depletion of the ozone results in stunted plant growth, cataracts, and skin cancer.
The Montreal Protocol was created to lower the amount of ozone-destroying substances in the atmosphere.
