No celebration is complete without balloons. Whether it is a birthday party, anniversary celebration, or a baby shower, you will buy the balloons you want from Balloon Party Box and celebrate. However, it is still important for you to think about the environment as you use balloons. In other words, you should learn how to use balloons in a responsible way, without causing a major negative impact on the world we live in. Continue to read this article, and we will share details on how to do it.
Using latex balloons
Some people assume that latex balloons are made with plastic. This is one of the most common myths we see about latex balloons. They are never made out of plastic, but with natural rubber latex. You don’t need to think twice before you buy latex balloons as they are 100% environmentally friendly. Even rubber used for manufacturing the balloons are collected through environmentally friendly techniques.
After you use the latex balloons, you can dispose of them at they are 100% biodegradable. In fact, these balloons will decompose 90% within a period of 24 months.
Using foil balloons
Numerous artificial materials are used for the construction of foil balloons. Nylon holds a prominent place out of them. These balloons also come along with an aluminum coating. You should think twice before you use these balloons as they are not biodegradable. Even if you are using foil balloons, you should try to reuse them as much as possible. Then you can reduce the environmental impact created by them. You just need to place the helium nozzle into the valve of a foil balloon and reinflate it.
Instead of purchasing balloons every time you want them, it is possible for you to deflate the balloons after you use them at the event. Then you can store them in a safe location and inflate them again when you are preparing for another celebration. You will be able to inflate the balloons easily on your own. There are numerous convenient guides available on the internet. For example, you can easily do it with a straw.
Releasing balloons to the air
Releasing balloons to the air sounds like an exciting thing to do. We inflate balloons with helium air, which will make them rise into the sky. However, releasing balloons into the air even in small quantities is not something that we recommend. That’s because such practices can pollute the atmosphere and the world that we are living in.
After the celebrations, make sure that you don’t go out and release them into the air with your friends. Instead, you can deflate the balloons and store them. Or else, you should safely discard them into a trash bin. Before that, it is even better if you can cut all the balloons and ribbons into small pieces so that you can get them to biodegrade quickly.
Now you have a clear understanding of how to be environmentally conscious as you use balloons. Always stick to latex balloons and try your best to re-use them over and over again. On the other hand, you should ensure that you are not releasing any balloons to the environment in an irresponsible way. If you want to dispose of the balloons, you should cut them into small pieces and throw them into a bin.
