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:



Tie a single balloon to a single weight. It stops them floating away and entangling in power lines.

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

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

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.

Cut the end of the balloon with scissors and dispose of in the bin. Be an environmental hero.

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