Responsible Sourcing

Because Pioneer Balloon Company is committed to responsible sourcing, all Qualatex latex balloons are made from rubber trees located in plantations that are Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Sustainable Agriculture Standard

In order to become certified, farms must meet the criteria of the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture Standard. The Standard encompasses all three pillars of sustainability-social, economic, and environmental. Rainforest Alliance Certified farms are audited regularly to verify that farmers are complying with the Standard's comprehensive requirements, which require continual improvement on the journey to sustainable agriculture.

Balloonzilla believes that by educating our customers about smart balloon practices, it will prevent misuse and continue making people happy with balloons.

Keeping your balloons secured to a weight. A helium-filled balloon should be tied securely to a weight that will keep it from releasing into the air. Never release foil balloons into the air.

After the party is over, many people will want to take the balloons home, but when you’re finished with them, pop the balloons and dispose of them properly. Do not release them into the air, although it is very rare, they can cause problems if they are tangled in power lines and can turn into roadside litter if not disposed of properly.

Keeping deflated or popped latex balloons away from small children to avoid risks of choking. Children can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons; adults should always supervise young children—especially those under 8 years-old—with balloons.
