Latex balloons are not plastic but comprised of natural rubber sap, which is biodegradable! Natural Latex comes from Rubber Tree Plantations which are a renewable resource.
Biodegradable: Latex balloons will biodegrade over a period of approximately 1 year.
- Latex is composed of 60% rubber and 40% water.
- Many tree species can produce latex but most of the latex for industrial use comes from the Heveas Brasiliensis, commonly known as the “crying tree”.
- Latex is extracted without harming the rubber tree.
We are proud and active members of the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA). As members we are committed to the responsible use and disposal of balloons. Balloonman are industry professionals who do NOT support, condone or facilitate the organised release of balloons.
We work to educate our clients, venue managers and the public, by all possible means in the correct disposal of balloons and we support PEBA in their “Don’t Let it Go, Pin it & Bin it!” campaigns.
