June is Great Outdoors Month so all UK residents should get out into the fresh air and do something fun as a family. Whether you are enjoying some one on one time with your significant other, having a family recreation day or enjoying a fun party with friends and relatives, make sure you incorporate activities outdoors. Everyone should enjoy the outdoors regularly and what better time to step up your efforts than on Great Outdoors Month? One really fun activity that you can incorporate into any event is to set off sky lanterns. It is the perfect outdoor activity for any occasion.

Sky Lanterns are a great way to learn about the environment

Great Outdoors Month goes hand in hand with conservation efforts and education regarding the environment. Using flying lanterns is the perfect time to incorporate a discussion on the importance of reducing waste to preserve the planet. One way of doing this is to explain how each flying lantern that will be released is 100% biodegradable. You can teach children what that means and discuss the importance of using biodegradable materials whenever possible. You can even get into the details with children as to how degrading works. Flying lanterns such as the ones found at are biodegradable and will leave no trace once they are exposed to the elements.

Using Eco Lanterns are a great addition to Great Outdoors Month

Fr an even greater benefit consider using Eco Lanterns. Eco lanterns are Chinese sky lanterns that work similarly to other traditional forms of sky lantern. However, the difference is the rate in which they degrade. While all flying lanterns are 100% biodegradable, the eco lanterns contain no wire so degrade at a much faster rate. You can get eco lanterns at This is also a great time to discuss animal and livestock safety with children and explain how the lack of wire in eco lanterns will ensure no animal consumes it or gets hurt by any remnants.

Adding additional elements to sky lanterns for Great Outdoors Month

In keeping with the eco friendly theme for Great Outdoors Month you can also add bio Bio Dove Balloons such as the ones found at These are also biodegradable and once released you may see complete degradation in as little as ten days. For those who want an additional item to release into the sky, bio Bio Dove Balloons are the perfect solution. Plus they can be used and released by children without any supervision.

Great Outdoors Month is the perfect time to enjoy sky lanterns. You can incorporate the release of sky lanterns, eco lanterns and bio Bio Dove Balloons into any occasion. If you are having a romantic evening for two, take a walk outside and release some flying lanterns. A family day or barbecue is the perfect time to incorporate some education with some fun. Any party or get together can be made more exciting with the use of Chinese lanterns. You have to release them outdoors, preferably at night, so Great Outdoors Month is the ideal time to do it.
