No Balloon Releases

Have you heard the balloon industry standard is to not deliberately release balloons, no matter if they are biodegradable?

Pro Environment Balloon Alliance (PEBA) was started in Australia as a grassroots movement to protect the balloon industry.

The PEBA team includes:

Brian Gray of Important Items, Perth Australia

Chris Adamo, Balloons Online, Sydney, Australia

Zoe Adams-Jones, JAZ Trading, Ormeau, Australia

Claire Geldard, The Party’s Here, Sydney, Australia

Ray Stewart, Impact Balloons Seaford, Victoria Australia

The Three Principles of PEBA

  • No Balloon Releases
  • Promote the Correct Disposal of Balloons
  • Inform and Educate

If you have not done so yet, go to the PEBA website to review the mission and if you agree – join PEBA. It’s FREE!

Although it is based in Australia, anyone from around the world can join the PEBA organization. Our hope is that the POWER of numbers will help environmental groups and the general public see how serious our industry is about this message.
