The ESG welcomes the release today by the SDGG regarding the end of a mass release of balloons on National Day. We have campaigned for some years for this ban alongside the GONHS and many individuals. The recent visit and efforts by Lewis Pugh is also recognised.

It is a great relief to hear that the impact from this annual balloon release on the environment has finally been acknowledged and we thank all those involved, both locally and internationally, in helping arrive at this decision.
