Our Clever Customers

@rikki_lee_hendry - Created a beautiful 1st birthday wake up surprise for Hazel's 1st birthday, then re-used the garland for her daughter Evie's birthday wake up surprise and then put it up in the playroom for the girls to enjoy.

@attica_hair - Decorated their salon with a pink balloon garland for #pinkoctober and sent us this photo of the garland still looking great 1month on.
Note: Not all balloons have such a long lasting life so to ensure your garland does last be sure to choose high quality natural rubber latex, air-fill with a hand pump (as the warm breath inside cools down the balloon will shrink fast) and keep out of direct sunlight.
If you have reused one of our balloon garland kits be sure to let us know or send us a photo on Instagram or Facebook!
Our Balloons Are Not Plastic
Our latex balloons are not plastic and do not contain plastic. Our latex balloons are a plant-based product, made from 100% natural rubber harvested from rubber tree plantations which are a renewable resource.
We only source our latex balloons from leading manufacturers who harvest their latex from sustainable Rainforest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations.
The Rainforest Alliance are an international, non-profit organisation working to build strong forests, healthy agricultural landscapes, thriving communities and fight climate change.
As latex balloons are made from natural rubber, they do breakdown. However, when balloons become litter the don't degrade sufficiently or quickly enough to prevent possible risk or harm to wildlife. So you need to dispose of balloons thoughtfully, don't let them fly away - Pin it & Bin It (or compost if you can)
Banning the deliberate release of balloons and promoting the responsible use and disposal is vital for effective environmentally responsible change.
