Environment & Ethics
Balloons and the environment.
Here at the Party Company it goes without saying that we love a good party, however we also love the great outdoors. Walking up hills is one of our favourite things (although the children aren’t so keen!).
Our love for the countryside means we want to do all we can for our amazing planet and that means minimising the impact we have on it as much as possible.
With that in mind we work to the following rules:
All our products are sourced responsibly from leading manufacturers.
All our regular balloons are made from 100% natural latex which is fully biodegradable (a latex balloon breaks down at approximately the same rate as an oak leaf).
All our packaging is fully recyclable.
We keep the use of helium to a minimum, we try and use air fill balloons in our displays as much as possible, for balloons that need to float we use a mix of air and helium – just enough helium to make them float and stay floating but always mindful that helium is a precious natural resource and needs to be used sparingly.
We will only facilitate small balloon releases and follow strict guidelines to ensure the release has minimal impact on the environment, have a read of our blog on this subject here.
