Balloons that respect the environment

Lifting the moment and protecting the planet.

At a time when the world is facing a growing plastic waste problem it is important to know that our balloons are not plastic. The simple sight of a balloon brings joy and happiness to people of all ages, we at Gemar® are passionate that spreading that joy around the globe can be environmentally friendly, sustainable and ethical.

Renewable and Sustainable

Gemar uses responsibly sourced natural rubber latex also known as caoutchouc, a milky sap harvested from the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree in the same way that maple syrup is tapped from maple trees. This natural and renewable material is preserved throughout the manufacturing process and biodegrades at about the same rate as an oak leaf.

The latex balloon, a natural choice

Don’t let go

Even though our balloons are biodegradable, litter is still unsightly and poses a very real danger to wildlife. Since everything that goes up must eventually come down, we don’t support balloon releases, instead we encourage our customers to use balloon weights and enjoy their balloons safely. After use it is important that all balloons are popped and disposed of responsibly.
