But here is the important part: All kind of balloons (Latex balloons or Mylar balloons) can be a big environmental problem when they are deliberately released into the environment (also called – balloon release). That’s because what goes up comes down (as litter…)
When are released balloons float up and disappear from your sight but not from the environment…
Even though balloons are not in the list of the top 10 items that pollute the ocean, when not handled and discarded properly they can harm pets, wildlife and the environment. That’s why there are already bans on balloon releases in some places in the world.
The good news is that you can still enjoy balloons without harming wildlife not the environment, if you don’t let go of balloons outdoors and if you won’t use any ribbon (or if you use natural cotton string rather than plastic ribbon) when tying them.
