People are so unaware of what's going on in the environment. Something that looks funny and awesome is in fact extremely "poisonous" in so many ways. Thank you for this article! Share share share the knowledge, you people!

Even though the view is spectacular it's really sad how bad it is for the environment :(

Talk about stating the obvious lol. Unfortunately though there are many silly people (to put it politely) in this world and they need to be told these things

I think you're right but we never stop learning things. Besides, it's okay to be reminded of such things 😉

Never thought balloons could have such a strong and dangerous effect on earth!

Thanks Brightside. Although, flying kites is also not a great idea. They hurt birds in many ways.

Those are also bad! There have been many stories about these kind of balloons starting forest fires.. just don't use balloons, there's no point to them anyway!

I had a sick cat come up to my house one day so I let her in and took care of her. She was starving, but also had some stomach issues and was throwing up and having a hard time pooping. Eventually, we found out why. Poor baby ate a balloon and was trying to pass it. Thankfully she did, but she definitely had to suffer through it. She stayed with us for about a week and then she decided she needed to go now that she was healthy and happy again. She left us and turned back to us and it felt like she said thank you and then purposely went to our neighbors who was a recent widow and decided she wanted the recent widow to be her human, which the widow told us was a God send. Cool story, but I felt so bad for her having to go through all that trouble cause of human litter. :(
