Hooray Today is a proud member of Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA) since 2021. 

PEBA was formed in Australia in July 2017 to be an advocacy body to promote positive changes in balloon industry practices, community education, corporate governance and to be a consultative body for legislative policy relating to balloons.

We are committed to the responsible use and disposal of balloons.

To protect the environment from unnecessary litter we do not support the release of balloons.

We urge our customers and others to share our commitment by not releasing balloons into the environment.

Latex Balloons

We only use the best latex balloons on the market.  

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.


Leading manufacturers harvest their latex from sustainable Rainforest Alliance Certified and Forest Stewardship Council Plantations. 

The Rainforest Alliance are an international, non-profit organisation working to build strong forests, healthy agricultural landscapes, thriving communities and fight climate change.

 

As latex balloons are made from natural rubber, they do breakdown. However, when balloons become litter the don't degrade sufficiently or quickly enough to prevent possible risk or harm to wildlife.

 

Banning the deliberate release of balloons and promoting the responsible use and disposal is vital for effective environmentally responsible change.


Helium

Medical Helium is not used to inflate balloons. Supagas, a leading supplier of helium explains that the helium used to inflate balloons is not pure enough for medical or scientific use. It is a by-product gathered during the production of medical grade helium. The majority of liquid helium boils off in the transfer process.

 

Instead of wasting this resource, it is collected and recycled. The sale of balloon gas offsets the cost of medical helium.
