Our Top Eco-Friendly Balloons: All You Need to Know

What Are Eco-Friendly Balloons?

Eco-friendly balloons or “Biodegradable” balloons are made from 100% natural latex which is responsibly sourced to provide businesses, event planners and customers, in general, an eco-friendly alternative to regular balloons. Latex balloons are created with biodegradable latex rubber material, which is a totally natural product that comes from the sap of the Hevea Brasiliensis (or simply, a tree that grows in very warm climates.)

It will then break down when exposed to the ever-changing elements of nature. Meaning that our environmentally friendly balloons are simply defined to be tree sap that’s been moulded and dried.

This then means that if our balloon products are exposed to the world, then the oxidation will help them to ultimately break down, this tends to happen within the first hour of inflation and is most evident when the balloon is exposed to any form of direct sunlight, heat or even normal outdoor conditions. And amazingly, the overall time for a balloon to biodegrade is studied to take around the same time as an oak leaf (which is around 6 months.)

For your reassurance, our giant 3ft latex balloons tend to float for around 24 – 36 hours, meaning that they are perfect for lengthy events, without the worry of them changing in appearance. They will also begin to cloud around 12 – 24 hours after inflation.

In conclusion, latex balloons are filled with helium and if released into the air, they decompose at a fast rate, and with that, the wind and air currents scatter them far apart. Also, it may be that balloons found in the wildlife or on beaches were carelessly disposed of by people.

Our environmentally friendly balloons are created with natural rubber, not man-made rubber or plastic which means it comes straight from the trees of mother nature, and those ultimately help the earth, wildlife and everyone around us!
