Show that the "green" effort isn't all hot air

I invite Mayor Fergusson and her green ribbon committee to appeal to booth-keepers at this year's marketplace to find an alternative -- a green alternative -- to balloons, which often are, within minutes or seconds, accidentally released by those little hands so eager to grab them. I for one don't need to see one more balloon floating away to who-knows-where. And into who-knows-which innocent creature's belly.

I agree: balloons are fun, but if you've hiked in the hills, around the Bay, or even walked in your own garden, you have undoubtedly found tangles of ribbons and parts of balloons. Mylar balloons in particular don't break apart.
If we can develop decay-able bags and containers, can we develop balloon material that will decay where it falls?

A green alternative to balloons? Give me a break. How about a green alternative to your lavish houses and 100k cars?
Yeah, thought so . . .
