Traditional Sky Lanterns are handcrafted using rice paper treated with a retardant which avoids catching fire like a page of newspaper. Each lantern is pre-assembled, individually wrapped in transparent OPP bag. The fuel cell is protected by a paper to prevent loss of combustible and pre-attached to the bamboo ring with a fireproof rope. All materials are 100% biodegradable.
When all combustible has burned out in the compressed cardboard fuel cell, the lanterns will gently descending back to earth. The delicate paper will break down in few days after landing back on earth and mostly eaten by snails and slugs. The remaining bamboo ring will biodegrade as fast as an Oak leaf or any tree stick. Those lanterns which are picked soon after landing can be disposed in the compost or recycled according to the local Council directives. Traditional Sky lanterns as well as the Supreme and Premium Sky lanterns do not contain any toxic substances or metal wire.
