Event description
Instead of inflating a balloon, inflate your knowledge of the harmful effects of helium balloons by watching Rubber Jellyfish

About this Event

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 unfortunately celebrate with balloons/balloon releases) We decided we would host screenings of the Australian film – ‘Rubber Jellyfish – the movie’ instead.

"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.”

We will be hosting our fifth and sixth screening of Rubber Jellyfish on :

Sunday 9th June 12-5pm

at

The Wild Seas Centre, Kimmeridge.

There will be two screenings of Rubber Jellyfish –

The first one starting at 12pm

and the second screening will start at 3pm

There will be a Q&A session after each screening
