Don't let go!

Some balloon manufacturers - most of them, members of the European Balloon & Party Council (EBPC) - have recently started to use the "Don't let go" symbol.
Designed by the EBPC, this optional symbol aims to raise your awareness not to release balloons into the environment and ensure, at the same time, you dispose of your balloons correctly and responsibly.
