Enjoy balloons responsibly

Please follow the EBPC Code of Best Practice for Balloons to ensure you enjoy the purchasing, handling and enjoyment of balloons. We’ve tried to keep it simple – so here’s what you should know:

Enjoy balloons responsibly

Keep balloons secured to a weight

1. Always tie one balloon to a single weight. If accidently released, there's less chance of it becoming entangled in power lines.

Supervise children under the age of 8

2. Uninflated or burst balloons can present a choking hazard. Please supervise your children at all times.

Bin it, do not release balloons

3. Cut the end of the balloon with scissors and dispose of in the bin. Balloons released to the environment can harm animals & the environment.

Always use a balloon pump

4. Always use a balloon pump to inflate your balloons. Using a pump removes the risk of bursting and injury.

Balloons are natural latex – may cause allergy

5. Most balloons are made of natural rubber latex and may cause allergies. Please advise consumers to look out for symptoms incase of allergies and get help.

Only purchase CE marked products

6. Only purchase CE marked products. Products in Europe that are CE marked are subject to high manufacturing standards and testing.
