We only use air filled latex balloons.
Latex is a naturally occurring product, it's 100% bio-degradable and environmentally
friendly. Latex comes from the rubber plant, a tropical tree native to South America and now cultivated throughout the world.
How Latex Breaks Down.
Exposure to water, sunlight and soil cause latex to break down at approximately the same rate as an oak leaf and faster than a piece of wood.
The process of decomposition starts at the time the balloon is made. After a latex balloon is inflated, it develops a patina, which is oxidation of the latex. Once a balloon pops or deflates, it degrades just like any other organic substance.
The rate of decomposition depends on the conditions of exposure. A controlled study demonstrated that under most conditions, latex balloon pieces are almost completely degraded within six weeks.
