Petition Ban balloon and sky lantern releases.

Balloon & sky lantern releases litter the environment, causing death to wildlife & in the case of sky lanterns, can cause uncontrollable fires that destroy life & property. Let's respect our environment & stop littering it.

More details

Balloon releases may look pretty, but they have to end up somewhere. They land in our seas & countryside where birds get tangled up in the ribbons, or the balloons & ribbons are eaten by other wildlife causing slow & painful death. Sky lanterns are even more dangerous. Sometimes landing early before the flame has extinguished, causing fire & damage with the possible risk to life. We wouldn't accept people littering our streets, so why accept littering our countryside?
