Balloons are more likely to kill animals than plastic debris

Hundreds of millions of them are released into the air each year, and putting wildlife in danger at the same time. 🎈

    I know even if balloons aren't released into the air, they can still end up in landfills, which can overflow into the ocean.

    The bad thing about releasing balloons is they wind up in the ocean, where they can lose their color, and marine life can mistake them for jellyfish. The balloons are not digestible.

    Live and learn. The innocent things of yesteryear are now known sources of pollution and death to sea creatures. I am boycotting balloons and live animal shows.

    Same with plastic garbage bags. I miss the brown paper bags you used to get. My mother saved them as a kid and found dozens of uses for the bags. Plastic in general is just bad. A lot of people don't know that oil is required to make plastics and it takes forever to biodegrade in landfills. Later gator.

    I find more balloons in Folsom Lake than I do plastic grocery bags following the California state ban on plastic bags. Balloons are a big problem.
