Belle Balloons promotes the responsible use and disposal of balloons without compromising the environment.

We use latex balloons, a natural based product.

  • Latex is not plastic
  • We use high quality latex. The cheaper balloons are cut with plastic.
  • It’s a natural, plant based product.
  • Latex is extracted without harming the rubber tree.
  • Trees in the rubber industry significantly contribute to the world’s tree canopy, vital in combatting climate change.

Biodegradable

Latex is a biodegradable substance produced by rubber trees and breaks down within six months.

Sustainable plantations

Our balloon manufacturer sources their latex from sustainable Rainforest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations. This contributes to building healthy forests, thriving communities and fights climate change.

Responsable balloon disposal

We are committed to helping educate clients, venue managers and the public in the responsible use and correct disposal of balloons.

Balloon disposal

Latex balloons do breakdown BUT if they become litter they don't degrade sufficiently or quickly enough to prevent possible risk or harm to wildlife.

Recycling our waste

We drop all our soft plastics into REDcyle Bins to be reused to produce a huge range of recycled-plastic products.

Re-use, repurpose & recycle

We also endeavour to re-use, repurpose and recycle as many of our products to ensure we maintain as little waste as possible.

We have a strict policy to not provide balloons for any events that intend to release them into the environment. Balloons are never supplied to clients on strings.

Although latex is biodegradable, we’re very aware of the impact that balloons can have if they are released into the environment and ingested by our wildlife.

ENVIRONMENTAL TIPS

Helping you to be environmentally responsible with balloons at your event

Installation removal by us

Belle Balloons can remove your installation, pop each balloon, and dispose of the small pile of rubbish appropriately.

If you remove the installation

If you remove the installation our team will leave you a calling card reminding you to dispose of the balloons safely and never let them fly free into the environment.

Use limited or no foil

Use limited or no foil balloons in your installations as foil is not biodegradeable.

Avoid balloons in the open air

Avoid having helium balloons in the open as you run the risk of them getting loose and escaping.

Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA) Membership
As members, we comply with their industry standards by keeping balloons attached to weights and never releasing balloons them into the air. Ensuring a controlled disposal after the event is just as important as the set up. PEBA aims to make Australia ‘The First Balloon Release Free Continent’ in the world.
