Balloons and the Environment

At burton+BURTON, we are committed to the protection of the environment. We encourage everyone to become familiar with the balloons facts and guidelines below. 

  • Latex balloons are biodegradable.
  • Latex balloons are made of 100% natural latex.
  • A latex balloon will biodegrade in about the same amount of time as an oak leaf.
  • Latex balloons should not be released with ribbon or any other attachments.
  • A foil balloon should never be released outdoors.
  • Do not tie helium-filled foil balloons together in a cluster with just one weight; rather, weigh down each foil balloon separately and then tie the group together.
  • Never tie metallic ribbon to a helium-filled foil balloon.
  • Call the power company if balloons are entangled in power lines.
  • Properly dispose of foil balloons by cutting to release air or helium and then place in a trash can.
  • REMEMBER: All balloons should be weighted ALWAYS!
