Good Morning from the Weather sKwirl™! Today = Beach Weather

Don’t turn the beach into a bummer  — next time you think about using helium balloons for a party — think again. All those getaway balloons go somewhere — often into the habitats of our marine animal friends. When the Weather sKwirl™ and Gorki™ recently visited Block Island —they found over a dozen latex and mylar balloons washed up on the beach during their short walk—including ribbons and string tangled around seaweed and other debris. This creates a hazardous situation for living creatures, who can either swallow or get stuck in these foreign materials. We know balloons are fun, but remember that a few hours of fun for you can turn into a lethal problem for others. How about flowers instead? 🙂

  1. Thanks for that good tip and reality check! Poor Mother Earth and animals are really taking a beating in the Gulf, so anything to keep her clean and healthy anywhere is a good thing.
