Stop releasing balloons in memory of....

Stop releasing balloons in memory of events. People are doing this in honor of love ones they have lost. Without realizing that releasing balloons causes harm to animals and marine life. I think it's time environmental minded groups should start voicing concern and help to stop this very disturbing trend. We can cone up with other ways to help people understand how their actions to honor of loved ones is actually harming others. To honor loved ones we can encourage the release of butterflies.

Why is this important?

Releasing balloons is harmful to wildlife and marine life.. Balloon cause birds and other marine life to starve to death because they swallow the balloons and can not eat. The strings get tangled branches and catch birds and they can't get out and starve or are hurt.
