New Jersey friends, now is your chance to get balloon releases banned!!! Contact your representative and let them know you support Bill S3177 that will impose a $500 fine on anyone participating in this aerial littering. The powerful lobby, The Balloon Council, spends millions fighting balloon legislation that prohibits the release of this destructive sky trash. Let your voices be heard before the lobbyists win again!!
Contact Senator Jim Whelan NOW!
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says balloons are a real threat to animals. The agency has urged people not to release balloons and has even posted grisly photos of dead birds and a turtle on a webpage.
