Balloon releases may seem like a good idea and they are especially popular for weddings and birthday parties, or at funerals. However all released balloons, even those wrongly marked as “biodegradable latex”, will return to earth – both on land and in our oceans – as litter pollution. They kill huge numbers of animals especially marine life. Balloons are able to travel for hundreds and thousands of miles and will pollute even the most remote and untouched of habitats.
