balloons and sky lanterns

Balloons, when let go of, fall back to earth and can be ingested by grazing animals, birds or marine creatures, so the Marine Conservation Society http://www.mscuk.org suggests we don't use balloons.

Sky lanterns similarly cause fires and litter and sometimes havoc when they fall back to land.  http://www.littlecherry.co.uk is a company which sells biodegradeable party products and balloons.
