Tell East Hampton Town to Save Wildlife by Banning Helium Balloons

Save Wildlife by Banning Helium Balloons in East Hampton Town

Dear Members of the East Hampton Town Board,

I am writing to urge you to ban the sale and release of helium balloons in East Hampton Town.

Balloons pollute our beautiful beaches, bays, forests and even our own backyards. Most end up floating into the ocean, where they are mistaken for food by sea turtles and other marine mammals, as well as birds and fish who can be injured or suffocate after swallowing them or getting entangled in the attached strings.

I respectfully ask you to pass a law prohibiting the sale and release of helium balloons, like the Town of Southampton and so many other Northeast coastal communities have done.
