What goes up must come down! Let’s stop the release of helium balloons that are harming or killing marine animals and birds.
While a few states are taking some steps to act - we need the Australian continent and oceans to be fully protected.
The Boomerang Alliance has prepared an action plan* calling for:
- laws to prevent the release of helium balloons
- governments ensuring compliance with those laws
- restricting the sale of balloon helium at the retail level to registered balloon industry suppliers
- requiring professional event managers to educate attendees, stop any releases and ensure correct balloon disposal.
By signing onto the letter below to your Environment Minister – we can convince all state and territory governments to stop this pollution.
Please support our call for a nationwide ban on helium balloon releases.
