Environmentally Friendly

Latex balloons are Earth-friendly! Rubber trees grow in rain forests. Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because latex-producing trees are left intact. A tree can produce latex for up to 40 years! Latex balloons are produced from the sap of the rubber tree. It is collected without harming the tree by using an environmentally safe, age-old process similar to that used for collecting the sap from maple trees for syrup. Because of rubbe r’s versatility and demand, these tropical rain forest trees are very valuable, highly coveted — and well-protected natural resources. These precious trees play an equally valuable ecological role in the earth’s fragile ecological balance by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere which helps prevent global warming. A latex balloon is made from 100 percent organic material and it’s 100 percent biodegradable. Stress caused by inflation starts this decomposition cycle. Exposure to sunlight accelerates the process — oxygen and ozone continue the molecular attack even in the dark. Deterioration is clearly evident within a few hours — it begins to oxidize or “frost” — and soon the balloon will break apart. Research has shown that under similar conditions latex decomposes as quickly as an oak lea




How to Be Environmentally Friendly



Travel by train, bus, bicycle or foot whenever possible. Limit your air travel, and consider taking a vacation closer to home.
Do not throw away toys, books or CDs that you don't want any more. Take them to a charity shop instead.
Do not fill a bath up to the brim. Alternatively, take a shower if you can.
Don't leave water running while you brush your teeth. Fix all dripping taps as soon as possible - a dripping tap wastes up to 50 litres of water a year.
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Use compact fluorescent light bulbs. They consume less power and last years longer then conventional incandescent light bulbs.
Put your trash where it belongs. Do you part to reduce litter and place your garbage in a garbage bag and your recycling in the proper bin.
Green your eating habits.
-Buy fresh products. Frozen, canned and processed products cost more energy to make. Buy fresh products which are more healthy for you and the environment.
-Eat foods that are organic when possible, locally grown, seasonal, and non-genetically modified.
Eat less meat. The production of meat needs a lot of energy and water, try to eat at least one time a week vegetarian or eat smaller portions of meat.


Start Recycling at Home



Create or purchase separate bins for your recyclables, or start using the bins provided by your city. Typically, families separate their recyclables into three categories: glass, plastic and paper.

Find out what day recyclable items are picked up in your community and place your bins curbside for collection.

The kitchen is a good place for smaller bins, and will prompt everyone to dispose of their recyclables in the proper bins instead of opting for the trash out of habit.



Find new uses for your waste. Recycling doesn't just mean separating plastics and paper from the rest of the garbage -- you can also reuse it.



Spend a happy family time playing with all the twisted you can imagine at anywhere you need it.
