Are balloons bad for the environment? You may be surprised. All our rubber balloons are made from 100% biodegradable natural latex. The latex is harvested from rubber trees (hevea brasiliensis) which can be 'milked' for years. When paper is made the tree is cut down, when latex is made, the tree stays planted and absorbs C02 from the environment. Natural latex is therefore a sustainable, renewable product and a source of income for small farmers in South America. Incredible but true!
How long do helium filled balloons last? Rubber/latex balloons last 2-3 days if treated with a Hifloat solution, but will only last approx. 18 hours if untreated. Foil balloons will last 3-5 days, bubble balloons approx. 2-3 weeks. Sometimes, these float times can be exceeded if the balloons are kept in ideal conditions. See our product care page.
How long do air filled balloons last? Both rubber/latex and foil balloons will last many weeks indoors when kept in ideal conditions (although rubber/latex will tend to lose their shine slightly after a period of time). See our product care page.
How many balloons can I fit into my car? Most cars can fit approx. 30-35 standard size (11 inch) inflated balloons. Large SUV's and estate cars can usually fit 50-70. If you would like any advice, please feel free to contact us. Don't forget, we also offer a delivery service.
I have my own balloons, can you helium fill them for me? Yes we can, but remember, not all balloons are suitable for helium inflation. Make sure to only buy reputable brands. We only use good quality, 100% biodegradable, rubber/latex balloons that have a good float life. Lower quality balloons will not look as good, will not float as long, and may even contain harmful chemicals in some cases.
