Lucie's Environmental Tip of the Week

My name is Lucie, as MCSS Environmental Advisor, I will be posting helpful tips and articles on environmental issues.

This week, lets talk about balloons:

There are so many things humans can do to reduce their impact on the environment so it’s important to start somewhere. One small thing you can do would be to not support the usage of balloons. They have a huge impact on the environment so why not find a sustainable alternative! Something reusable, recyclable or compostable would be a better option. This 2 minute article nicely sums up why balloons can be detrimental to wildlife and the environment. https://balloonsblow.org/impacts-on-wildlife-and-environment/. And the same site has lots of information about sustainable alternatives! https://balloonsblow.org/environmentally-friendly-alternatives
