Earth Day 2019 – Balloons by Tommy

Earth Day 2019

Happy Earth Day!

A little information regarding balloons and our planet:

Latex balloons are 100% biodegradable and do so at the same rate as an oak leaf.

They are NOT made of plastic. Latex is harvested from trees in a similar manner to maple syrup. The tree is not cut down and can produce latex for over 30 years!

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.

Balloons can fill a room with décor, but what you are seeing is mostly air. Once popped, thousands of balloons will not even fill 1 garbage bag, and they are biodegradable! This installation is less trash than 1 cardboard sign/banner, or dinner table set with disposable items.

As with any item, balloons should always be used responsibly. When you are finished enjoying balloons please “pin it and bin it”. Foil balloons can be reused or recycled. Balloons should never be released outdoors.

No matter what color balloons are, they are always a green choice for décor!
