All of our latex balloons are made from high quality natural latex which is created from the sap of rubber trees – an organic material which is fully biodegradable. Latex is harvested from trees in a similar manner to maple syrup. The tree is not cut down and can produce latex for over 30 years.
Leading manufacturers source their latex from sustainable Rainforest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations. This contributes to building healthy forests, thriving communities and fights climate change. A latex balloon biodegrades at the same rate as an oak leaf (6 months). Due to this, balloons can be disposed of in landfill as they take care of themselves.
Balloons use Grade 4 Helium – the lowest level of purity on the market. Grade 6 and above is the purest form, used for medical purposes, meaning there’s no cross over of markets.
The Environmentally Friendly Option
Balloons can fill a room with decor but what you are seeing is mostly air. Once popped, thousands of balloons will not even fill 1 bin bag and they are biodegradable. This is less waste than 1 cardboard sign/banner.
We do not condone or knowingly provide balloons for balloon releases. Releases are incredibly harmful for the environment and shouldn’t be conducted under any circumstance. When you are finished enjoying balloons please "pin it and bin it". Balloons should never be released outdoors.
