Forpliktelser

God Ballongpraksis

Smart Balloon Practices ble satt opp av The Balloon Council i USA i 1990 for å informere forbrukere og myndigheter om folie- og gummiballonger og hva som er riktig behandling av disse.
Nå har vi innført begrepet God Ballongpraksis her i landet.
Som en ansvarlig ballongforhandler, – dekoratør eller – artist skal du…

  • Alltid sette vekt på alle folieballonger.
  • Aldri bruke metallbånd på heliumfylte ballonger
  • Aldri knyte heliumfylte folieballonger sammen i bunter
  • Alltid spørre om lateksallergi når du selger  lateksballonger/gummiballonger
  • Alltid informere kundene dine om god ballongpraksis
  • Aldri bruke folieballonger i ballongslipp (BAFM har også innført at du aldri bruker gummiballonger i ballongslipp også.)
  • Alltid passe på små barn med ballonger og ikke la de leke med uoppblåste ballonger
  • Alltid kaste ballonger, både folie- og gummiballonger på en forsvarlig måte i restavfall.
    Bruke en saks for å åpne ballongen rett over knuten  eller ventilen og umiddelbart kaste de i restavfall

Medlemmenes forpliktelser

På sine nettsider har PEBA skrevet opp disse forpliktelsene for sine medlemmer. Medlemmene i BAFM er også medlemmer i PEBA og har de samme forpliktelsene.:

The Pro Environment Balloon Alliance

Members of PEBA commit to the following:

No Balloon Releases

  1. Although latex balloons are biodegradable, Balloon Releases, by definition, can be classed as littering and any adverse effect on our environment is unacceptable. Members of PEBA do not support, nor will they facilitate the deliberate release of balloons. There are hundreds of ways that balloons can be used to commemorate an event, or celebrate the life of a loved one, without releasing them into the atmosphere. We believe that banning balloon releases enables us to work with a wonderful product that actually has a substantial positive environmental impact on our planet.
  2. To continue to educate clients and the public in the positive environmental side of balloons, their correct use and disposal.
  3. To support BASA’s “pin it and bin it” campaign by educating their clients / venue managers, etc, in the correct disposal of balloons.
  4. Members would also be asked, where possible, to include a link to their website, invoices or email signature to help spread the word.
  5. Members would also be asked to notify PEBA if they become aware of any environmental issue, pertaining to balloons, or are having any difficulties dealing with anyone in regards to environmental issues.

PEBA is committed to:

  1. Free Membership
  2. Working co-operatively with Environmental Groups, Politicians and the Media in presenting an environmentally friendly and balanced view of balloons.
  3. Establishing and maintaining a website where all members’ details will be listed. The website will be consistently updated with all details pertaining to the environment and will be able to be used as a resource for Industry Associations and individual members. Under certain circumstances, it will all so be used as a referral point for Environmental Groups, Politicians and the Media.
