At last! Ethical, Fair Trade, 100% degradable balloons

Submitted by on Tuesday, 4 March 2008 Loading Add to favourites  No Comment

A birthday isn’t a birthday without balloons, according to Little Miss Green!Today is Little Miss Green’s Birthday, so just a quick post from me while she plays with some of her new presents. I am thrilled to be able to give credit, first hand to Fair Deal Trading for an excellent product and speedy service. (Thank you James!)

Last month I won a pack of their Fair trade, 100% degradable balloons! For Little Miss Green, a Birthday is not a Birthday without balloons.

Unfortunately for me, this has been a huge bug bear,as I see them as an environmental menace. They either end up in the landfill, long after the child has grown out of balloons or get released into the environment where they can harm wildlife.fairly traded, 100% degradable balloons sourced from India

Anyway, back to our happy loot. These balloons are the strongest ones I have ever seen – big too! The rubber is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and is fairly traded from India. They cost just £2.30 for a pack of 25 and I can promise you, you won’t be disappointed with the quality.

Fair Deal Trading are better known as the home of fair trade footballs and Ethletic trainers, but pop them in your favourites folder if you have an eco Prince or Princess who will be wanting balloons in the future 🙂
