ECO Friendly

Balloons By You are proud to have partnered with Eco Friendly suppliers that allows us to send our items out without hurting the planet.

So, who do we use and why?


At Hero Packaging, we use their Compostable Sticky Tape, Labels and Mailers when packaging and shipping our products to customers around Australia.

The Mailers are a 100% home-compostable and made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that's completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch).

To compost these at your home, all you need to do is cut the shipping mailers up and use them as brown materials in your compost bin. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment.

The mailers are also reusable with a double adhesive strip! Simply cut along the flap and use the second sealable strip to package your item up again.

The compostable adhesive used on the Shipping Labels are non-toxic and safe for composting. This also means the adhesive is not as aggressive as toxic adhesives which aren’t compostable.

Composticky Tape is a vegan product made from PLA (polylactic acid) and natural rubber adhesive and meets the requirements for disintegration and ecotoxicity.

We package our balloons (and any other mini accessories) up in clear sheets - these may look like plastic, but we can assure you that it's actually a clear compostable film made from sustainably sourced wood pulp.

We wanted our products to be packaged and displayed in a certain way, but didn't want to use plastic. We found vegware to be the best option and we're so glad we found them!
