Someone interested in this campaign has spurred an interest in taking the Ban The Bang in Fireworks to Europe. Therefore, the more sign-ups the better. I will approach European Regulators towards the end of January. Please sign up, share, and encourage others to sign. Worth a read - this article addresses the pollution elements of fireworks (in Hawaii - how much worse might it be here in our crowded towns and cities?). http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00207237508709692

BAN THE BANG IN FIREWORKS RECEIVED AND SOLD IN THE UK
Please ban domestic fireworks which create an explosive BANG. . Their noise is unnecessary for the domestic retail market. Returning fireworks to the visual performance of the true firework production professionals (1970's/'80's) will reduce emergency service costs; domestic sales markets; reduced work sickness (anxiety / depression) and farming / agricultural returns.
Why is this important?
Fireworks with an explosive bang frighten ex-service people; people with anxiety; stops cows from lactating; panics dogs, cats, birds and other pets; can cause heart attacks / shock and result in death for animals which accidentally consume the products of fired / misfired explosive devices i.e. fireworks. Pets and people go missing around the time of Diwali, Halloween, Bonfire night , Eid, New years (all), other parties. The loud bang is unnecessary to the firework's impact. Please save our planet's lifestock and get this unnecessary noisy element banned. Let's enjoy the whizz ssshhhh of fireworks and reject the shotgun effect.
