History of balloons
Long, sausage-shaped balloons were first created in 1912. Invention of latex balloons happened in the 1920s and helped with advertising in the 1930s. After the introduction of plastic foil balloons in the 1970s, people printed pictures and graphics on the surface. The practice of releasing hundreds of helium balloons at once became popular in the 1980s. When a balloon is in the air and it finally falls to the ground, the wind blows the fragments into the water and soil.
Balloon launches created litter and over time, people became worried. Today, there is a growing understanding of how to use them ethically in order to prevent harming animals and the environment while yet enjoying the fun of these inflated toys.
Parties, events and celebrations
Balloons are a popular method to commemorate special occasions such as birthdays, events, and festivals. They also play a part to memorialize important milestones in people’s life, such as weddings and parties. Weddings and other celebrations frequently feature welcome arches and balloon walls while Children like seeing balloon artists create cartoon creatures or exotic animals. Commercially, people use them to commemorate grand openings of enterprises or to introduce new items.
Balloon drops are becoming common at concerts and other public gatherings as an environmentally friendly sort of balloon release. Air-filled balloons are held high above the target spot, contained in a net. They float to the area below after being released from the net, where they are gleefully captured by onlookers.
