Balloon release seems to be a must to mark the opening/closure of an event. Many have been to report how bad a habit this is, especially for marine creatures which end up entangled in the remnants of balloons and strings. The eco-school committee at Gozo College Middle school put forward a solution to stop all this. Why not releasing trained pigeons instead? Just like balloons they go up and come down but without creating any litter or pose a danger to other species.
