Latex balloons are not plastic; but are a natural substance extracted from the Rubber trees. This milky white sap known as latex; is then refined to remove impurities and created into balloons. The demand for latex balloons worldwide benefits farmers in third world countries providing a sustainable source of income through plantations and rainforests on land which would otherwise be cleared for cattle grazing. The Global climate is also benefited by the amount of CO2 that is absorbed by the rubber trees.
Latex balloons are biodegradable. The process of degradation occurs at approximately the same rate as a leaf takes to degrade, but much quicker than the thousands of years that plastic products take to disintegrate.
We, at Balloons Galore, Do not promote or support the release of balloons into the environment. The Balloon sculptures we create will not be released into the environment, but will be appropriately disposed of at the end of their display period. They will be popped indoors, and will be able to degrade in landfill or compost, away from animals that might otherwise mistake the balloon remnants for food.
