We are very pleased to announce that B-Loony Ltd were crowned Gold Winners in the The Green Award category at the SME MK & Buckinghamshire Business Awards 2020.
The Green Award was presented to B-Loony for being "green" in business terms, by reducing or removing the harmful impact that products and/or services have on the environment. In B-Loony's case, this award reflected the action B-Loony have taken to replace plastic with sustainable alternatives across their entire product range.
B-Loony Ltd's particular focus over the last year has been the introduction of a plastic free alternative to the traditional balloon stick which is to be banned by the EU in 2021.
Their unique solution is the BalloonGrip® balloon holder, made entirely from recyclable cardboard. The patented product gives consumers the eco-friendly accessory they desperately required in order to continue using natural rubber balloons, which are already sustainable, biodegradable and plastic free.
In addition to the BalloonGrip®, B-Loony have also rolled out a number of alternative materials for many of their core products, including 100% paper sticks for their branded handwaving flags, and two new styles of eco friendly bunting, manufactured using either wool or cotton instead of the industry standard polyester or plastic.
This proactive action from B-Loony Ltd was recognised by the judges who commented:
"This business have clearly taken action to address the issues of their industry,
so now rather than being part of the problem, they are a part of the solution."
