How Latex Balloons Are Made

Latex or rubber balloons are made from the sap of rubber trees, which are carefully grown and cultivated in tropical areas like the rain forest. The rubber trees are carefully tapped much like a maple tree for it’s maple syrup. The latex trees are not destroyed but kept alive to extract the valuable sap which is then used to make rubber products like latex balloons, tires, and other rubber goods. So when you use birthday balloons or personalized balloons you are keeping the rain forest alive with trees that sustain the rain forest and the Planet Earth.
