Balloons and the Environment
We promote the responsible use and disposal of balloons without compromising the environment. Although we use natural latex biodegradable balloons, at the end of a balloon's life, cut the end of the balloon with scissors to remove any air or balloon gas, then dispose of it in the bin.
Never release balloons into the environment. All released balloons become litter. They can get caught up in trees or power lines.
Remember - Don't Let Go. Pin It and Bin It.
Latex is not plastic:
We use high quality latex balloons.
It’s a natural, plant based product.
Latex is extracted without harming the rubber tree.
Trees in the rubber industry significantly contribute to the world’s tree canopy, vital in combatting climate change.
Latex is a biodegradable substance produced by rubber trees and breaks down over a period of time.
Bubble Balloons are non-allergenic balloons made of a clear, stretchy material. These balloons are long lasting and ideal for indoor and outdoor decor, because they are made of non-oxidising material. Not suitable for children under 36 months .Adult supervision required. When you’ve finished with your balloons, simply snip the end of the balloon with scissors before placing in a suitable bin.
Foil balloons may conduct electricity. Never release helium-filled foil balloons outdoors. Helium-filled foil balloons must always be attached to a balloon weight to prevent them from floating away. When you’ve finished with your balloons, simply snip the end of the balloon with scissors before placing in a suitable bin.
Balloon gas is simply a by-product from bottling helium and other industrial appliances and would have otherwise been wasted. Instead of losing the gas to atmosphere, it is captured and sold as balloon gas instead of helium due to its high level of impurity. Helium is non-toxic, non-flammable and not harmful to the environment.
Balloons - Precautions
Balloons are not a toy. Un-inflated or burst balloons can present a choking hazard and should never be left with children under the age of eight without supervision.
Store balloons away from pets to ensure that they cannot get themselves tangled with balloon ribbons or accidentally ingest popped balloons or their decorative contents such as confetti, feathers, or other materials.
If a balloon pops, clear away any broken balloons and it's decorative contents (if applicable) immediately.
Most balloons are made of natural rubber latex and may cause allergies. Please look out for symptoms in case of allergies and seek immediate help.
Inhaling helium can be dangerous and it is not recommended. It can deprive your body of oxygen and can result in a fatality.
