Helium balloon release ban in Queensland

  • Location
    Bundaberg, Queensland
  • Status

The Problem

We wish to ban helium balloon releases, hopefully Statewide, because they eventually come down pollute our world and hurt or even kill our wildlife. Instead, 7year old students thought we could tie the pretty helium balloons down with long strings and they can be seen much longer as not released to disappear, and then can be brought back down and disposed of in the best environmentally friendly way.

Our Plan

We have learnt to write persuasive letters, so wrote to our Mayor who has written to the Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection. We hope to hear the outcome very soon.
