Environmental

The sap from Rubber Trees is harvested for the manufacturing of latex balloons.

Rubber Tree Plantation and the Rain Forests are the main source of these Rubber Trees.  The Plantations help maintain our atmosphere and protect the ozone layer. In the Rain Forest, the Rubber Trees survive local deforestation because sap harvested is more profitable then cutting down the trees.  

Biodegradability

Our latex balloons are 100% biodegradable. The degradation process begins almost immediately.  If you have an outside event you will see the oxidation (frosting) process start within a couple of hours. Exposure the sunlight quickens the process.  Under similar conditions latex balloons will biodegrade at about the same rate as on oak leaf.


Foil/Mylar Balloons

Foil or Mylar balloons are made of Foil, similar to aluminum foil these balloon are not biodegradable.


Pat's Balloons: Recycling & Re-Purposing 

Pat's Balloons of Woodland Hills, CA. is recycling & re-purposing foil/Mylar balloons. Foil or Mylar balloons are made of a metallic foil type material and they are not biodegradability as the latex balloons.

      Foil Balloon have great graphics, after they are deflated frame the balloon and hang it on a wall, it makes a great party memento.
