At Boutique Balloons & Events we take looking after the environment seriously. Balloons ARE an environmentally friendly option, a huge display is mostly air & once popped thousands of balloons fit into one disposal bag and are fully biodegradable.
Our latex balloons are made from high quality natural latex, an organic material which is fully biodegradable and manufactured in the UK. 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 Rain Forest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations. This contributes to building healthy forests, thriving communities and fights climate change. A latex balloon biodegrades at the same rate as an oak leaf (6 months). Due to this, balloons can be disposed of in landfill as they take care of themselves.
We do not support, condone or take part in balloon releases nor knowingly supply balloons for such environmentally damaging events. Balloons should never be released outside,
Once you have finished enjoying your Boutique Balloons please pop them & bin them responsibly.
Our Bubble Balloons are made from a durable, stretchy plastic, They are made from Polypropylene - a product of natural polyolefin resins. In comparison to PVC which sits in landfills for hundreds of years, they take fewer natural resources to produce, generate fewer waste products in production and disposal and are widely recycled in the UK. Polyolefin resin is originally extracted from hydrocarbon sources, therefore, with the addition of carbon or hydrogen at high temperatures, Polypropylene becomes degradable. Unlike PVC or chlorine plastics, when burnt Polypropylene does not produce toxic gases.
