Environmental impacts and responsibilities

Christmas and more acknowledges and accepts our responsibilities to our environment and educating our customers. 

We do not offer single use plastic tableware anymore and instead have replaced these items with a reusable plastic that can be washed and used over and over again. 

We also stand against the release of helium balloons into our environment and ask that our customers instead deflate and dispose of all their balloons responsibly. When released, balloons pose a significant risk to our environment and wildlife. 

We supply and recommend the use of sempertex and amscan balloons which are a high grade rubber latex balloon and much kinder to our environment.

This is taken from the Amscan website; 

All our latex balloons are made of natural latex, also known as caoutchouc. This natural and renewable raw material is obtained from rubber trees, which do a great job at filtering CO2 from the air, in turn, helping us reduce pollution and are home to many birds, insects, and animals. And they are not hurt during the extraction process!

Our latex balloons are made without using any fillers, extenders, plasticizers or any cost reducing agents and have excellent helium and air retention. They also fulfill the highest safety and quality standards.

Our foil balloons are reusable and can be reinflated up to 4-5 times without losing their quality. The easiest way to deflate them is by inserting a straw with a length of at least 7.5 cm into the valve and pressing lightly on the balloon. And not to mention, we prioritize air filled solutions vs. helium, which means that the balloons are less likely to float away and end up in the environment."
