We get it – latex can be to the environment what kryptonite is to Superman. At BBMTL, we use high-quality latex balloons made from plant-based rubber versus cheaper alternatives that are plastic and latex. More importantly, we ensure every client is educated on safe disposal methods – because we know that balloons can harm the environment if not appropriately disposed of.
So how do we benefit from the beauty of balloons – while staying green in the latex world?
Here are some of our tips to ensure we all spread the love to mother nature:
– To ensure the safe disposal of the balloons at your event in an environmentally conscious manner, offer a takedown service of all in-person installations.
– Should your clients choose to take the balloons down themselves, remind them to dispose of them safely versus letting them loose into the air.
– Once each balloon is popped, remind them to RECYCLE – balloons are made from limited foil and plastic and are not biodegradable.
– Stay committed as a balloon business owner by reducing consumption and re-purposing products when feasible. Ensure that your products are recycled appropriately by educating your clients on safe disposal methods.
