The Balloon Council (http://www.theballooncouncil.org/) has revised their stance on balloon releases and states that they believe balloons should no longer be released.
“Worth the Weight: The Balloon Council says balloons should not be released.
We stand with communities by encouraging that balloons be weighted, not released outdoors, and disposed of properly when broken or deflated. Whether it's a single balloon or hundreds, let's keep them from flying away.
Don't let go: Inflate. Weight. Enjoy.”
There is a movement around the country where balloon releases have been used to promote local balloon use bans.
In fact, the town of New Shoreham, Rhode Island voted to ban the sale and use of balloons back in April of this year.
As someone who loves and enjoys balloons, and makes a living from their sale and use, this makes me very sad. There are ways to be responsible with balloons that are sensitive to the environment and that can ensure their safe use.
We want you to know that Platinum Balloon Décor does not condone nor sell balloons for balloon releases.
Thank you for your support!
