Florida Balloon Release Bill

Victory | May 02 2014

Plastic Pollution

The goal of this campaign is to stop the Florida Legislature from allowing large scale helium balloon releases. Currently, Florida law prohibits the release of more than 10 helium balloons in a 24 hour period. A proposal in the Florida Legislature would increase that limit to 100 helium balloons at at time for balloons released as a part of a funeral, memorial service, or faith-based event.
