Schools, Churches & Non-Profit Groups

(Name of school, church or group)   _____________________ pledges to not to litter balloons by releasing them into the sky. We recognize that “what goes up, must come down” and that every single balloon that is released will return to Earth or the ocean as potentially harmful litter.

We also pledge to pick up litter (including balloons and their attachments) whenever we find it and dispose of littered items properly.

Further, we pledge to let others know that releasing balloons into the air is a form of littering. We will encourage other groups to NOT release balloons, and instead choose an alternative activity to celebrate their event. When we celebrate we will consider planting things that are good for the environment (trees, bushes or flowers), or maybe we will install a park bench as part of our celebration.

We take this pledge to help our community be cleaner. And since balloons can travel great distances, we also take this pledge to help wild animals that we might never see.
