Should the release of helium-filled balloons be banned?

    I have vague recollections of balloons NOT being released at the Sydney Olympics as the result of a proposal put forward by some young girl. Maybe someone out there remembers more details. Anyway, didn't seem to decrease the enjoyment of that event.

    Why not make balloons out of food for fish and birds? The colours can be food dyes. The issue needs to be raised - it's really important - but there are heaps of cool alternatives and opportunities to do things better and once people get inventive about this something will be done - thanks for raising the matter. Let's get more publicity for doing the right thing and having fun at the same time.

    Why not replace balloon releases with bird releases or colourful paper kite releases or butterfly releases.
    There are a lot of alternatives.
