While it may seem that our product is dangerous, the opposite is true. With proper use, all of our products are completely safe. Compared to many of the alternatives to Chinese lanterns, our lanterns are incredibly safe and when used correctly the best choice for lighting up the night sky.

Sky Lantern Safety

The only thing that could cause an issue with our sky lanterns is misuse. Our FAQ, as well as the detailed instructions that come with each of our sky lanterns details all of the precautions that must be taken to prevent a dangerous outcome. To this end, there are only a few precautions that must be taken:

· Avoid Windy or Wet conditions while launching sky lanterns

· Store lanterns in a dry and secure place to prevent damage and never attempt to launch a damaged paper lantern.

· Do not launch sky lanterns within 30 metres of any object that could be in the path of the lantern.

· Do not launch the lantern near flammable materials such as trees or dry grass.

· Avoid launching near airports or other areas where a lantern could be viewed as a call for help.

Sky Lanterns are the Safer Alternative

Compared to other evening celebratory devices, sky lanterns are much safer; not to mention more polite. Look at sky lanterns compared to fireworks. First of all, fireworks are loud and very short lived. The noise alone is a big detraction and in some areas they are banned for this very reason. Secondly, they do not last very long. You launch one and it’s gone within seconds.

From a safety perspective though, fireworks are far more dangerous and unpredictable than sky lanterns. A typical floating lantern can be safely launched in any weather fireworks can be launched safely and rather than shooting up into the air and exploding, they simply drift upwards and away and with appropriate precautions, as mentioned above, there is no chance for a dangerous situation. Most everyone who has used fireworks at one time or another had a near miss of some sort. Bottle rockets often do not fly where they are supposed to and at best their flight paths are irregular.

Environmental Safety and Sky Lanterns

As part of our commitment to safety, we have developed our Eco lantern series. While all of our sky lanterns are biodegradable, the duration of time for our traditional Chinese lanterns can be 2 years for the thin wire that helps support the fuel cell. With our eco lanterns, there is no wire. Instead, with the Eco lanterns, there is a treated wool component which degrades much quicker and is not dangerous to wildlife and livestock. The entire thing completely degrades in weeks, rather than almost completely except for the wire which takes longer to break down. Available in multiple colours, these especially environmentally friendly Eco sky lanterns can be purchased here:
