What goes up MUST come down and often balloons released into the air pop and come down to land in our oceans, rivers, lakes and woods – right where wildlife live. Popped balloons floating in water look like jellyfish (a sea turtles favorite food). The strings of balloons get wrapped around birds impeding them to fly, eat, or walk. DON’T USE BALLOONS. Find alternatives like streamers, flowers, and paper pom poms. Visit Balloons Blow to learn more!
