‘Don’t Inflate to Celebrate’ is a campaign raising awareness of the negative impacts of aerial litter –i.e helium balloons and sky lantern releases.
We are celebrating our tenth anniversary this year.
As part of our tenth anniversary, we thought we would celebrate in a different way to some people (who still, unfortunately, choose to celebrate with balloons/balloon releases). We decided we would host screenings of the Australian documentary– ‘Rubber Jellyfish – the movie’ instead – alongside local business Ecotainment! to spread the message about the negative effects of helium balloons in an eye opening documentary.
**“Rubber Jellyfish is a feature-length documentary that explores the effects of helium balloons on the environment, wildlife and human beings. Mum-to-be Carly Wilson sets out on a personal journey to meet key players on all sides in the fight to ban balloons, and exposes the confronting truth behind our favourite party product. As she travels around Australia seeking to understand the science and various points of view, Carly discovers a range of issues, from the heartbreaking impact on sea turtles to the potentially deadly effect of helium on children. Her journey takes her from littered beaches to the capital, as she speaks to activists, businesses, and politicians to find out why the balloon problem is being ignored and if something can be done.”
Having hosted the Uk and European Premiere, back in March (and a couple more screenings since), We will be hosting a few more screenings:
in West Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck in just over three weeks time:
