Swan upping is a very British experience that only the true Brit can understand. The tradition itself dates backs almost a thousand years, beginning in the twelfth century when the crown laid claim to all mute swans. Swan upping was done to keep a record of the number of swans that the crown owned so they knew how many were available for banquets and feasts. The crown realized these animals were a limited resource and were only be used for special occasions. Today, the crown continues the tradition and aside from the very rare occasion, they are preserved and protected. The Swan upping celebration today is done instead to count these birds to ensure they are thriving year after year. As the Swan Uppers begin their travels up the Thames, know that Night Sky Lanterns is hoping for a bountiful upping this year. Our commitment to environmentally safe products ensures that our products won’t be responsible for a low swan count this year.

Wishing Sky Lanterns – First of their Kind

With all the stories that came out about Chinese Hanging Lanterns causing injury to animals from the support wires not degrading fast enough and being eaten or causing other injury, reacted quickly out of our concern for the environment. From there emerged the Eco Lantern. Rather than using wire to support the fuel cell, specially treated wool is used instead. It offers all of the strength of the wire as well as all of the fire and heat resistance but in an environmentally safe product that breaks down incredibly quickly once the lantern has been used. Rather than waiting for months for the wire to rust away, the wool is completely broken down in a matter of days and even if a passing animal mistakes it for food, it won’t injure them in the process. The Eco lantern from Night Sky Lanterns is availablein white as well as mixed colours and both are perfect to launch to support the Swan Uppers in their cause.

Another Exclusive – Bio Bio Dove Balloons

While we are all likely aware of the dangers which metallic balloons present, did you know that traditional balloons are also cause for concern when it comes to the environment? Traditional balloons, made of rubber or synthetic rubber take months to fully break down once they land. While they won’t shut down a city’s electric supply, they are bright colours that animals will notice and try. Many animals cannot digest these products and they can aspirate the pieces of balloon material, potentially causing death. The Bio Bio Dove Balloons  are fully biodegradable and can be completely gone in as little as ten days, reducing the chances of them causing an issue with animals. On top of this, they look like birds in flight and would a perfect complement to the Swan Upping festivities that are occurring over the next few days along the River Thames.
