Biodegradable Balloons and Accessories.

Biodegradable Balloons and the Environment

Working together to continue the environmentally responsible use of  biodegradable balloons.

Balloons add a sense of joy to any event. Children and adults alike are attracted to the bright colours and
fun shapes. Shimmering orbs floating above a celebration give an air of festivity. Businesses use them to advertise and give them away as souvenirs.

Specialty Balloon Printers Australia and New Zealand is committed to environmentally responsible change and is also committed to reducing balloon litter and any potential effects on wildlife by eliminating the deliberate release of balloons.

However, many people have the wrong perception that modern balloons are bad for our environment.
In some cases this is true, depending on the material used to make the balloon. In our case, all of our balloons are made with a 100% biodegradable Latex material.
Latex is not the same as Plastic – When latex balloons are handled properly, they are Eco-friendly,
starting with how they are made and ending with how they are discarded.

                                Eliminating the deliberate release of balloons and promoting the responsible use and disposal is vital for effective environmentally responsible change.  A balance is required to develop policies that are environmentally responsible, that are commensurate with the actual level of impact and do not unnecessarily deprive balloon artists and small business owners of their livelihoods.

Latex Balloons are not plastic, they are Biodegradable.

Today, almost all balloons are made of natural rubber which is a plant based product. Rubber or latex balloons are made from the sap of the rubber plant, Hevea Brasiliensis. Latex is 100% biodegradable. The rubber plant is a tropical tree native to South America and now cultivated throughout the world. Rubber is extracted by collecting the sap from a live tree, which produces latex for approximately 25 years. A single rubber tree can offset 1 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide during its economic lifespan.

                                                      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.

Let’s bring the balance back – perspective on balloons and the environment.

How Latex Balloons Break Down / Biodegrade

Exposure to water, sunlight and soil cause latex to break down at approximately the same rate as an native
tree leaf and faster than a piece of wood. The process of decomposition starts at the time the balloon is
made. After a latex balloon is inflated, it develops a patina, which is oxidation of the latex. After a balloon
pops or deflates, it degrades just like any other organic substance. The rate of decomposition depends
on the conditions of exposure.

A controlled study demonstrated that under most conditions, latex balloon pieces are almost completely
degraded in about six weeks. However, any attachments to balloons, such as ribbons and strings, may not
have the same properties as latex.

Take care how you dispose of your balloons

Of course, the best way to keep our environment clean is to be careful how you dispose of your balloons
after you have finished with them. This includes not releasing them into the air if they are helium filled,
and to cut the balloons at the knot, deflate the balloons then place the deflated balloons in the bin.

                 Be responsible with balloons is as easy as 1,2,3…

1. Don’t let it go – Keep the balloons attached to weights and never release balloons into the air.

2. Pin it & bin it – Dispose of balloons responsibly. Pop the balloon and put them in the bin.

3. Be the Change – Celebrate responsibly and encourage others to do the same.

Helium …

Did you know?

The helium used to inflate
our natural 100% latex balloons is a by-product
gathered during the production
of medical grade helium, the
sale of which offsets the cost of
the medical helium.

Helium is a non flammable gas.

The gas is inert,  it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, inert, monatomic, the first in the noble gas group in the periodic table. Why is helium considered as an inert gas? … It is considered an inert gas because it is very stable and doesn’t react with other chemical elements. Its boiling point is the lowest among all the elements.

Our balloon accessories are Biodegradable too …

New Biodegradable – 400 mm Sticks & Cups. Use this balloon accessory for inflating our biodegradable balloon range with air, 100 units in one pack.
