Biodegradable Balloons

See It In Practice

Bubblegum 100k

To celebrate the Bubblegum team getting to 100k on Instagram, we decided there was no better way to mark the occasion than by brightening up HQ and creating our best install to date.

Even better, we used all biodegradable balloons and demonstrated just how little impact the balloons have once the show is over. Armed with scissors we set to work and within 10 minutes the entire install was popped, removed and in one bin bag! Yes really, all of that over there - one bin bag.

So the next time you have something big to shout about, get in touch to see how Bubblegum Balloons can help make that happen in an environmentally conscious way.

Watch For Yourself...

The Facts

Latex Balloons

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.


Sourcing Latex

Leading manufacturers source their latex from sustainable Rain Forest 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.


An Enviromentally 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.


Balloon Releases

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.
