Unhappy Balloon ban
Do you have hear or read about balloon ban?
https://needforgreen.it/stop-ai-palloncini/
I just read this article, environmentalists say that balloons are a problem for the animals in the oceans, cause they swallow balloons, unfortunately balloons are made of plastic so they want to ban loons and already many cities banned them.
I'm the the first to protect the world but I really wouldn't imagine the world without balloons , are there any solutions? What do you think about?

I can understand stopping the release of helium balloons because of course, what goes up must go down and it pollutes environments and harms animals. Surely people will still be allowed to get air filled balloons (not a problem to most looners). Still a pain however

Most are biodegradable (at least the natural latex ones anyway) perhaps just synthetic latex and helium balloons should be banned.

We'll do the same thing we've been doing after gun control and prohibition of drugs/alcohol. There will be a creepy guy in an alley that can get you whatever you need for a certain price.

I mean they can try, but I definitly think most people in the world have bigger concerns than balloons and will laugh it off.

Most of the articles I can find specifically mention helium balloons, it's not clear whether these regulations make a distinction or not.

I can see why helium balloons would be banned, especially balloon releases.

I can see a time when helium is banned for blowing up balloons and releases are also illegal as it seems popular these days to really push to stop this sort of thing ( I totally agree with balloon release bans). I think these sorts of things go in cycles, the balloon manufacturers will just need to get smarter as to how they market their product!
