- They biodegrade at the same rate as an Oak Leaf

How does it work?

Latex balloons are made of natural rubber latex, which is extracted from the sap of rubber trees. The sap is collected by making small cuts in the bark of the tree, and it flows out like sap from a maple tree. 

The latex is then processed into balloons using a variety of methods, including dipping them into vats of latex or blowing them up with air compressors. In order to make biodegradable balloons, some manufacturers add an enzyme called cellulase to the latex mixture, which causes the balloons to break down more quickly when they’re disposed of.

 

 

 

-A latex balloon starts out as a liquid called latex milk.

-The latex milk is extracted from the rubber tree using a small tap on the trunk of the tree.

-The latex milk is then boiled down to make solid rubber.

-The rubber is melted down and formed into balloons.

-The balloons are then inflated and sealed with a thin film of wax.

-The balloons are carefully processed to make sure they are biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

So next time you’re looking for balloons for your special occasion, remember that latex balloons from 99 Haus Balloons are a great choice! Not only are they fun and festive, but they’re also eco-friendly and can be fully broken down in the environment. So get out there and celebrate with balloons - just make sure they’re latex balloons and please, don't release them into the air!
