About our Products
We only use Qualatex, The Very Best Balloons which are made by Pioneer Balloon Company in USA. The company are making balloons for more than 100 years.
The Qualatex brand latex balloons are 100% biodegradable because the latex which are used in the manufacturing process comes from the Rubber Tree.
Latex is harvested by tapping the rubber tree in a manner that does not harm the tree. Each tree, and there are billions, consumes CO2, thus reducing global warming. When latex is processed, each part of the product is used. Later the tree no longer produces latex, it is harvested, and its wood is turned into lumber. Each year mature trees are tapped, old trees are harvested, new trees are planted, and CO2 is consumed.
Keep balloons fun! Be responsible!
Alfie Balloons is committed to the responsible use of balloons.
When handling balloons, always remember:
- Never release balloons into the atmosphere.
- Never inhale helium gas.
- Always use a balloon pump to inflate your balloons.
- Always secure helium-filled balloons to a weight
- When you're done enjoying your balloons, cut the ends and properly dispose.
- Keep children safe when playing with balloons and dispose any deflated or popped balloons right away.
Stance on Balloon Releases: Balloons Should Not Be Released
As a leader of The Balloon Council, Pioneer Balloon Company has worked with others to implement a new industry position against releasing any balloon into the environment. Don't let go: Inflate. Weight. Enjoy.
Alfie Balloons says balloons should not be released. People love balloons, but for many reasons no longer support balloon releases. We are working hard to share and inspire the use of Smart Balloon Practices to keep balloons available for every occasion.
We stand with communities by encouraging that balloons be weighted, not released outdoors, and disposed of properly when broken or deflated. Whether it's a single balloon or hundreds, let's keep them from flying away.
