Q. What are latex balloons made of?

A. Little-Known Facts

  • Latex balloon are made from 100% natural latex— not plastic. Our latex balloons are biodegradable, and decompose as fast as an oak leaf in your backyard!
  • Latex balloons come from rubber trees. Latex is collected by cutting the tree’s bark, then catching the latex in a cup. Latex harvesting doesn't hhurt the tree!
  • Latex balloons are Earth-friendly! Rubber trees grow in rain forests. Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because latex-producing trees are left intact. A tree can produce latex for up to 40 years!
  • If the sound of a balloon popping startles you, you a’re not alone. A bursting balloon actually creates a small sonic boom! Once a hole is made in an inflated balloon, the quick release of the balloon’s energy, or air, causes the hole to grow at almost the speed of sound in rubber. Since this speed is much higher than the speed of sound in air, the hole in the balloon actually breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom.
  • Balloons were invented in 1824, the same year as the electromagnet.
  • Pioneer manufactures nearly one billion latex balloons per year.
  • Helium-filled balloons float because helium is lighter than nitrogen and oxygen, the two components of air.

    Q. What is the Clown CODE OF ETHICS?

    A.The Eight Clown Commandments

    I. I will keep my acts, performance and behavior in good taste while I am in costume and makeup. I will remember at all times that I have been accepted as a member of the clown club only to provide others, principally children, with clean clown comedy entertainment. I will remember that a good clown entertains others by making fun of himself or herself and not at the expense or embarassment of others.

    II. I will learn to apply my makeup in a professional manner. I will provide my own costume. I will carry out my appearance and assignment for the entertainment of others and not for personal gain or personal publicity when performing for either the International club or alley events. I will always try to remain anonymous while in makeup and costume as a clown, though there may be circumstances when it is not reasonably possible to do so.

    III. I will neither drink alcoholic beverages nor smoke while in makeup or clown costume. Also, I will not drink alcoholic beverages prior to any clown appearances. I will conduct myself as a gentleman/lady, never interfering with other acts, events, spectators, or individuals. I will not become involved in or tolerate sexual harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or any protected status.

    IV. I will remove my makeup and change into my street closes as soon as possible following my appearance, so that I cannot be associated with any incident that may be detrimental to the good name of clowning. I will conduct myself as a gentleman/lady at all times.

    V. While on appearance in makeup and costume, I will carry out the directives of the producer or his designated deputies. I will abide by all performance rules without complaint in public.

    VI. I will do my very best to maintain the best clown standards of makeup, costuming, properties, and comedy.

    VII. I will appear in as many clown shows as I possibly can.

    VIII. I will be commited to providing and atmosphere free of discrimination and harassment for clowns of all ages to share ideas and learn about the art of clowning.

    Q. What is the Prayer of a Clown?

    A. Help me to create more laughter that tears, dispense more happiness than gloom, spread more cheer than despair.

    Never let me grow so big that I will fail to see the wonder in the eyes of a child or the twinkle in the eyes of the aged.

    Never let me forget that I am a CLOWN... that my work is to cheer people up, make them happy, and make them laugh, make them forget momentarily all the unpleasant things in their lives.

    Never let me jeopardize the integrity of clowndom by improper coduct. Help me to always make others proud of my actions as a clown.

    Never let me aquire financial success to the point where I will discontinue calling upon my Creator in the hour of plenty.
