Kiama joins helium balloon ban

Kiama Council has joined the worldwide movement to reduce plastic contamination of the ocean by banning the release of helium filled balloons. The balloons will be banned at Council events and on Council managed land. Kiama is the last South Coast council to join in the ban.

Concerns centre not only on the balloons, but on the damage caused to marine animals and birds by the hard plastic used to seal them and the strings attached.
