Protecting our earth is important to you and Trist ‘N Shout Balloons. To Book, Call 717.813.4071.

What is special about April 22? Earth Day! That is why at Trist ‘N Shout we are supporting businesses and families that make an effort to preserve and protect our planet.
Who has gone green recently? Starbucks. Last Thursday they gave away free fresh brewed coffee to anyone that brought their own mug into Starbucks(if you bring in your mug on a regular day, save 10 cents on your purchase!). It not only helped to prevent waste, but they served you free fresh coffee, too! Way to go, Starbucks!

We had the priviledge and the pleasure of helping decorate our local Starbucks in Wyomissing, PA this previous Thursday, too! While enjoying our great coffee in environmentally friendly mugs, we built a 3-4 foot tall tree! The great thing about balloons is that they are environmentally friendly, too! They are made from a sap in trees(similar to maple syrup) and decompose at the rate of a maple leaf, too! The best part is that they do not disturb the natural habitat and are a renewable resource! About two bags of balloons support one tree. If you have seen our work, you know that sometimes we can use just that in a single piece! Again, I would to say a big “Thank you!” to Starbucks for promoting the protection of our planet. Also, I mentioned a balloon tree that was rather large. In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, here is our earth-friendly tree supporting earth-friendly Starbucks! How are you celebrating Earth Day?

We love Starbucks and so do our balloons!

Ahh! Now…I think that I will go to Starbucks for my coffee today.

  1. I absolutely love this tree. May I ask what method of weaving you used to create the trunk? This has inspired me greatly.

  2. Dan,
    Thank you for your feedback! We always love to hear that we are inspiring others! I used the tak weave to create this particular tree. It is one of my personal favorites. Do you have an idea of something that you would like to create?


  3. Hi Tristen,
    I am actually a student at an arts school, and have a project coming up that would require me to create a tree. My friend and I have been experimenting with different mediums, and balloon twisting has become our favorite. This trunk has been exactly what we wanted to create, and we are already practicing! What size of balloons were used? And is that Qualatex Moca Brown? I absolutely love your work.


  4. Dan,
    Thank you for the compliment! I am happy to help! I understand what you mean about balloons being your favorite medium…they are my personal favorite, too! The balloons are 260Q and the color is mocha brown. If you have any other questions about anything, please let me know. Good luck with your project! I hope you get an A+!
