- We routinely use Qualatex balloons - the very best balloons
- We use biodegradable balloons made from 100% latex
- Latex balloons decompose as fast as an oak leaf in your back garden
- Balloons come from rubber trees.
- Latex is collected by cutting the trees bark and catching the latex in a cup
- Latex balloons are earth friendly .Rubber trees grow in the Rain Forest
- Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because latex producing trees are left intact.
- A tree can produce latex for up to 40 years
- If the sound of a balloon popping startles you, you’re not alone. A bursting balloon actually creates a small sonic boom! Once a hole is made in an inflated balloon, the quick release of the balloon’s energy, or air, causes the hole to grow at almost the speed of sound in rubber. Since this speed is much higher than the speed of sound in air, the hole in the balloon actually breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom.
- Balloons were invented in 1824, the same year as the electromagnet.
- Helium-filled balloons float because helium is lighter than nitrogen and oxygen, the two components of air.
It is important that consumers be aware of suffocation hazards to children under eight years old who may choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons.
