Letter: Beach balloon mess a genuine hazard

ballon trash sayre letterTo the editor:

Yesterday, I picked up 52 party balloons along a one mile stretch of Horseneck Beach.

Please do not release helium balloons outdoors. They not only return to earth as litter but they and their attached ribbons are a serious hazard to marine life. There are also much more important uses for our dwindling supply of helium. See www.balloonsblow.org.
