Safe Balloon Practices
We are balloon professionals committed to the responsible use and disposal of balloons.
We are members of PEBA – The Pro Environment Balloon Alliance. We follow their guidelines and promote the continued fun and responsible use of balloons while protecting the environment.
Although statistically balloons make up a very small proportion of marine debris and waste, the industry is committed to reducing any potential impact from balloon litter on wildlife.
Please help us do the same and follow the safe balloon practices guidelines here: https://www.peba.com.au/safe-balloon-practices
Latex balloons are not plastic. They are a plant-based product, made from natural rubber harvested from rubber tree plantations which are a renewable resource.
Leading manufacturers harvest their latex from sustainable Rainforest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations.
The Rainforest Alliance are an international, non-profit organisation working to build strong forests, healthy agricultural landscapes, thriving communities and fight climate change.
As latex balloons are made from natural rubber, they do breakdown. However, when balloons become litter the don’t degrade sufficiently or quickly enough to prevent possible risk or harm to wildlife.
Banning the deliberate release of balloons and promoting the responsible use and disposal is vital for effective environmentally responsible change. We ask you to Pin it & Bin it!
