Latex Balloons and The Environment
We are proud members of PEBA -The Pro Balloon Alliance.
We promote the Pin It & Bin It Campaign.
We will not sell balloons that are to be intentionally release into the atmosphere.
When you have finished appreciating your balloons please pin it & bin it.
Latex balloons are a plant-based product made from natural rubber which does breakdown. However, balloons become litter when they don't degrade sufficiently or quickly enough to prevent possible risk or harm to wildlife.
Eliminating the deliberate release of balloons and promoting the responsible use and disposal is vital for effective environmentally responsible change.
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.
Rubber trees are one of the main forms of vegetation in tropical rain forests, which are crucial to maintaining the earth’s ecological balance and combating climate change. Latex production also provides employment and income for people all over the world.
Helium is a gas used to float balloons, which is non-toxic and non-flammable.
Supagas, a leading supplier of helium explains that the helium used to inflate balloons is not pure enough for medical or scientific use. It is a by-product gathered during the production of medical grade helium. The majority of liquid helium boils off in the transfer process.
Instead of wasting this resource, it is collected and recycled. The sale of balloon gas offsets the cost of medical helium.
Evidence has proven that helium inhalation can be fatal. Symptoms and signs are similar to that of Asphyxia. The inhalation of helium cuts off a persons supply of oxygen and can cause dizziness, unconsciousness and ultimately death.
