Latex balloons as void fill packaging
Hi! I read your great answer about what would happen to balloons in a gift box in the hull of a plane.
I'm looking into using latex balloons, really small ones blown up to about half, as a beautiful and eco-friendly void fill packaging solution.
I sell handcrafted jewelry in Australia, ringsandstones.com.au, and quite often post to the US and UK. I need something in the box to stop the beautiful package from moving around.
As latex is biodegradable I thought this would be a better solution to excessive bubblewrap.
It is also a really beautiful solution, opening a gift with a couple of balloons just adds to the occasion.
In the previous answer you said that the balloon would probably be mylar and also the distance was across the United States not on a flight that could last 24 hours.
I don't want to send a beautiful package that when it is opened has only burst balloons. What do you think of my idea?
