Balloons don’t just fade away

Balloons are launched in great quantities at festivals and celebrations and the beach and sea bear witness to it. Ever more balloons and plastic ribbons land there, often with fatal consequences for the animals. Balloons take a long time to desintegrate, plastic ribbons last almost for ever.

Three organisations for the protection of the sea (Kust&Zee, Stichting De Noordzee, Plastic Soup) created the site  www.dieballongaatnietop.nl/alternatieven  with a list of alternatives that are just as festive and definitely not so harmful as balloons.
