Manila Casino cancels New Year Balloon Stunt after Criticism

A Luxury Philippine Hotel and Casino has called off a world record attempt for releasing tens of thousands of balloons to mark the New Year following complaint from environmental groups and a government warning.

Okada Manila, a sprawling resort in the country’s capital that includes a hotel, casino and restaurant, had planned to ring in 2019 by dropping 130,000 balloons in one of its nightclubs to set a new world record.

But in a recent statement, they said: “It had voluntarily cancelled the stunt as a sign of respect to environmentalists warnings and in support of the government’s campaign to save and protect the environment.

DENR, Chief Roy Cimatu described Okada Manila’s decision as ” laudable”.

They initially had insisted that balloons should be biodegradable and would be recycled after the events.
