Biodegradable is a big word.
Biodegradable means a material that can be broken down by bacteria and micro organisms, living things that are smaller than we can see.
The balloons supplied with this kit are made from latex, which is a natural material.
It is collected from rubber trees, which can grow up to 43 metres.
They generally last up to 30 years and when they are cut down the wood can be turned into furniture too.

Caring for your balloon masterpieces!
Once you have made your balloon models, look after them.
They won’t last forever, but following some simple tips will make them last longer.
Keep them away from sharp objects, a balloon’s worst enemy!
Hot places like cars or glass tables that have been in the sun for a long time can be quite hot, not only for yourself but also your balloons.
Keep them off the grass, after all individual pieces of grass are called blades of grass. Grassy areas can have twigs and other objects that might pop your balloons.
