Custom Balloons and The Amazon Rainforest

What does a Custom latex balloon have to do with the Amazon rainforest? Listen to this. You already know  that the Amazon Rainforest is vital to the life of our planet. You may not know that the latex balloon has its origin in the rain forest. You may not realize how the custom balloons sustains the Amazon Rainforest.

The latex balloon industry has a positive  impact on the rain forest by using a renewable resource form the rain forest. The rain forest has wild growing rubber plants where latex is carefully harvested. A rain forest farmer called a rubber tapper can care for about 2 to 3 acres of rubber plants. The rubber trees have their sap which is raw latex drawn in a manner which maintains the tree and thus the life giving rain forest. So when you use a rubber latex balloon you are in a small way saving the rain forest.

The next time you see the smile that a custom latex balloon creates on the face of a child think of the rain forest. The next time you see the splendid colors provided by custom balloons or wedding balloons or party balloons think of the rainforest.
