The Hague and Utrecht are going to ban air balloons – NetherlandsPosted on February 22, 2019 by DrRossH in Balloons
No more balloons will be allowed in The Hague and Utrecht soon. It is still unknown when the prohibition comes into effect and what kind of penalty will be imposed on it.
“The remnants of balloons are being eaten by fish, birds and other animals, and therefore cause a lot of animal suffering due to entanglement in ribbons or starvation after eating balloon remains”, says alderman Richard de Mos from The Hague.
We don’t need them at all, banning them is no loss to any one who cares about the environment we and the wildlife live in.
