Contrast to the sky release of balloons

Occurrences, parties, funerals, the balloons are increasingly used and the negative impact they have on the environment is ignored. Their release into the air not only causes harm to nature but also to animals that get trapped in the strings or mistake them for food. Balloons rank third among the most dangerous waste for seals, turtles and seabirds.

This is a much more frequent threat than one might imagine: during a research carried out by the University of Wales Swansea, in the UK, balloon pieces make up 80% of the waste found inside the stomachs of the sea turtles analyzed. It is inevitable that what flies high, comes back down.
