Wouldn't the balloon festivals held in certain states be a danger to wildlife? I know they are popular, but what affect on nature? Unless the states have a plan that makes it less destructive.

Those balloon "tributes" are so ridiculous.  I can think of a million other gentle ways to honor a loved one that doesn't do harm but good.

on the website I listed it states how they had gotten a football league to stop with the balloon release. They are taking it serious. Plus, like the article states helium is in demand. It's not only the balloons it's those shiny ribbons, etc.
