Balloons & Sustainability

There is much misinformation about balloons and damage to the environment. As in all of our business and event practices, we are committed to minimising the impact on the environment and avoiding any injury to animals or wildlife. 

The PFM Events Group are proud and active members of the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA).

Wherever possible, we only use fully-biodegradable latex balloons. More on environmentally sustainable latex production and helium production here.

As members of PEBA, we:

  • do not support, or condone, nor will we facilitate the deliberate release of balloons.
  • promote the correct use and disposal of balloons.
  • strongly reccomend purchasing helium balloons from an environmentally responsible PEBA member.
  • actively educate and work with the public, government and our clientele about the importance of not releasing balloons into the environment and safe disposale of their balloons.
  • Helium used in production of our balloon designs is recycled from the process for medical helium extraction and would otherwise be wasted. More here.
  • Please help us inform people of the potentially fatal dangers of inhaling helium - click here for info and to share with your loved ones.
Please contact our team anytime should you have any questions​.
