These latex balloons are 100% BIODEGRADABLE which can decompose as fast as an oak leaf in your backyard. Use the balloons from your party on your garden as mulch.
“Balloons Kill Baby Sea Creatures and Wildlife”.
A fantastic headline that will definitely grab the attention of the public. However let us consider s few facts;
-Most balloons that end up in the harbour and waterways are because the general public simply let them go after their party, instead of popping them and disposing of them properly.
-National Parks and Widlife Service and Taronga Zoo do not have any documented cases where balloons have caused the death of any animals. However both organisations have appeared in the media denouncing balloons as bad for the environment. Where is the evidence?
-The Clean Up Australia reports identified that 1% of all rubbish collected was in the rubber category. Most of that was rubber tyres. Balloon litter was so insignificant that it did not rate its own sub category.
-Any profesionally released balloons that end up in the waterways are so small as not to cause any ham to the sea creatures who may ingest them – see our balloon releases page for detailed information on this point.
-Most Balloon and Party Industry Professionals are mums and dads, and have the same concerns for the environment as you do. We are not environmental vandals. On the contrary our industry plants more trees as we grow, and we feel that we are making a vauable contribution to the greening of the planet.
