Here at Penny Black, we’re super keen on having our finger on the pulse when it comes to the excellent products we bring you. That’s why we’re making some exciting changes to our party balloons! Let us tell you more…
- Extracting helium from the Earth’s crust is… SURPRISE, bad for the Earth!
- There’s a worldwide shortage of helium
- Sustainability in the balloon world has been the number 1 concern recently – single use plastic use is also high for example.
There must be a better way to bring the joy and fun but with less of the bad things, we hear you ask. And you’d be correct! We aim to cut our use of helium by a whopping 75% over the next year by offering more creative and trend-driven balloon arrangement designs using plain old AIR. Yes, air!
At our Glasgow balloon stores we’re taking our tried and tested customer favourites and using air-filled latex balloons to build unique and quirky displays that will bring the same joy and fun, making those small every day celebrations special. Oh and latex? That’s biodegradable.
So we hope you’ll join us in this mini-revolution and help us move to a more sustainable and Earth-kind party offering!
