[RE: VIDEO – Maple Ridge florist releases 150 balloons for St. Patrick’s Day, March 19, The News]
It is with great heartbreak and disturbance to have seen so many [Facebook] messages [in reaction to the story published online March 17].
But with even more horror, I realize how badly I have polluted the environment by choosing to release bio-degradable balloons.
I take full responsibility for my actions, realizing I did not have the true meaning of bio-degradable.
We will not, under any circumstances, make this choice again, but will instead educate myself better on the decision I make.
Thank you to all those who shed light on this, as our environment is of utmost importance.
Westgate Flower Garden, Maple Ridge
