Our latex balloons are not plastic! They are a plant-based product, made from natural rubber harvested from rubber tree plantations which are a renewable resource. To dispose of these balloons, just put them with your regular household waste so they can breakdown naturally. Do not let them float away though where they could land and cause harm to wildlife and marinelife. Our motto is “Pin it and Bin it” The Party Pirate is a proud member of the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance.
