A bouquet of red, pink and heart shaped balloons are a great way to say “I Love You” this Valentine’s Day, but don’t let them fly away.
That is one of the tips offered by The Balloon Council as part of the Meet Faraday: Smart Balloon Practices education campaign.
“Balloons help us celebrate special times in our lives and unforgettable moments, which is why so many people give balloons on Valentine’s Day. This is the perfect time to raise awareness of the best ways to handle and dispose of balloons,” said Lorna O’Hara, Executive Director of The Balloon Council.
If you are giving balloons as a gift, or receiving them, be sure to keep these simple tips in mind:
The Meet Faraday: Smart Balloon Practices campaign empowers the public to take simple steps that will help mitigate issues that could impact the use and enjoyment of balloons across the country.
“Everyone loves balloons. They are bright, colorful and lift our spirits. But, we all need to do our part to and be mindful of these smart practices to ensure that balloons are a part of our celebrations for years to come,” said O’Hara.
The Balloon Council encourages the public to share their balloon filled celebration photos by posting on Facebook www.facebook.com/balloonsliftup, and Instagram www.instagram.com/balloonsliftup, using the hashtags: #liftUpSomebody or #BeBalloonSmart.
The Balloon Council is a non-profit organization made up of responsible retailers, distributors, and manufactures that are dedicated to educating others about the wonders of balloons and the proper handling of them.
