Balloon release

Hi all,
Just want to remind everyone that if balloons are released / discarded into the environment, they can potentially kill wildlife.
They can be ingested by animals and birds can become entangled in the ribbon.
They are basically litter and even the so called biodegradable latex ones do not prevent problems for wildlife as they do not degrade fast enough.
The foil ones look pretty but are bad for the planet.

So have a great party with balloons, but please don't release them into the sky or let them escape into the environment.
Our kids deserve a clean unpolluted world....we need to try and make that happen!

Thanks for reading my post...sorry if it sounds like a rant....just don't know how to make it read better!
