Earning My Ears
- Sep 24, 2012
Disney won't give out plastic straws anymore, so I' a little miffed that they still sell balloons. Balloons kill the birds and other wildlife that come in contact and try and eat, what makes that different than a straw?I've been reading about the effects of balloons, even "bio-degradable" ones and how it can still take up to 4 years for them to decompose.
I know this is a big part of going to theme parks for kids, but I just wonder if the environmental impact is going to make them less appealing to consumers.
I KNOW there's MANY other places that have balloons and the parks are only a very tiny part of that, but just wondering your thoughts.
