Ballons are fun. Kids love them. Some adults love them, too. However, did you know that these bags of air pose a threat to the environment?
Eons ago, before the dawn of human civilization, animals lived peaceful lives in their respective habitats. Fresh air, plentiful trees, and clean waters were the norm. After humanity thrived and populated the Earth, we invented technology. The industrial revolution served as a tipping point, granting humans the ability mass produce all kinds of things. Unfortunately, this came at a cost – damage to the environment.
A lot of big companies produce things that benefit humanity, but are actually harmful to the environment. Case in point: the simple balloon.
Balloons are used as additional elements to brighten things up during events. Sometimes, people release them into the air just for the heck of it.
What people don’t think about is what a balloon is made of – harmful chemicals that are hard to break down, making it dangerous for animals who come in contact with it.
Which is why Balloons Blow is trying to get people to think twice about what they do with balloons. This organization is committed to promoting the proper disposal of balloons after use.
Think about it, would it please you to see what was once a pretty meadow, now covered in waste? Of course, not.
Think twice before planning a party and ordering those colorful balloons. Yes, they are quite a joy to look at but they don’t do much good for the environment.
