Balloons and the Environment - A report commissioned by DEFRA

30 May 2013 6:30 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

It’s no great secret that there are a number of campaigns to ban balloon releases, with some even looking for complete balloon bans.  Are our balloons really so terrible to livestock and the environment?  Well, it seems that others are asking the same question, as a report was recently commissioned by DEFRA (Dept for Environment & Rural Affairs), and the Welsh Government, Dept for Environment & Sustainable Development.  The report was titled:

Sky lanterns and helium balloons:

An assessment of impacts on livestock

and the environment.
