Are all balloons are eco-friendly, not just the green ones?

Posted: 5 May 2017

Latex balloons are 100% natural. And, as such, they break down organically in sunlight and water. Latex should not be confused with or referred to as a plastic.

Research has shown that a latex balloon will break down at roughly the same rate as a leaf from an oak tree.

And, whether in rain forests or plantations, the rubber trees that provide the source of the latex are crucial components of the ecological systems in the countries where they grow. Some 16 million rubber trees are harvested annually to support the balloon industry alone; the regrowth and biology of the tress help extract huge amounts of CO2 from our atmosphere – helping to protect the ozone layer and our environment as a whole.
