Happy Birthday!

Ever wonder what happens to that balloon that slipped from your fingers as a kid? What goes up must come down. This particular happy birthday balloon was found 30 km from the closest town, but it probably came from much further away. It wasn’t Matt’s birthday, but it did bring some much needed entertainment to the day!

  1. That’s one found, X thousands left to find. Seriously, I don’t understand why these aren’t banned. I guess most end up at sea, and there’s a massive plastic problem in those waters. I don’t get why plastic fishing gear (both nets and lines) are allowed either. So much is lost each year, they need to be decomposeable.
