0% Balloon
0% Balloon

People release balloons on special days to express joy. But even natural latex balloons often take more than 1 year to degrade in the environment, and the exposed balloon fragments have been eaten by birds(40%) and marine life like turtles(53%) ,which caused their deaths. 0% balloon hold the desire to reduce biological harm to 0. By adding soap on the balloon surface, soak the balloon in water to dissolve bubble water, people could get the same joy by blowing bubbles instead of releasing balloon. In the new use process, the balloon is naturally collected into the paper container, will not flow out before degradation and cause biological harm
