Facts About Balloons

Latex Balloons:-

All of our latex balloons are made from high quality natural latex which is created from the sap of rubber trees- an organic material which is fully biodegradable. Latex is fully harvested from trees in a similar manner to maple syrup. The tree is not cut down and can produce latex for over 30 years.

Sourcing Latex:-

Leading manufacturers source their latex from sustainable Rain Forest Alliance Certified 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.

Helium:-

Balloons use Grade 4 helium the lowest level of purity on the market. Grade 6 and above is the purest form used for medical purposes. Both grades originate for the same sources but balloon gas is unrefined containing about 2% other gases, meaning it is unsuitable for scientific application.

24% of helium is used in Cryogenic applications including MRI Scanners

20 % is used in the Space Industry

18% is used for Welding

16% is used by the Electronics Industry for growing crystals

6% is used for Leak detection

5% is used by the Party Industry for Balloons

Facts:-

A typical MRI Scanner uses about 10000 Litres of Liquid helium – the equivalent of 211.888 Balloons

Balloon Releases:-

We do not condone or knowingly provide balloons for balloon releases. Releases are incredibly harmful for the Enviroment and shouldn’t be conducted under any circumstances. When you are finished enjoying balloons please ” Pin it and Bin it” . Balloons should never be released outdoors.
