Clarington considers banning balloon releases – USAPosted on March 15, 2017 by DrRossH in Balloons
New report says balloons pose a threat to the environment
On March 6, council’s general government committee approved a draft bylaw that prohibits releases of more than 10 balloons at a time in a 24-hour period.
A staff report says that when released balloons descend, about 70 per cent of them fall into oceans or lakes, where they pose a threat to fish and animals.
Nice move but why not restrict all helium balloon releases? So a user could still release 9 balloons at a time multiple times a day?
