What is the environmental impact of latex?



  1. 0 Votes

    Latex itself is found naturally in many different tree species and is not usually damaging to the environment in such a form. However, latex does produce rubber, so it has all the environmental impact associated with rubber plantations: deforestation, habitat destruction, biodiversity loss, production pollution, etc. Latex products may also be environmentally hurtful if not disposed of properly. Latex paint, for example, contains many toxic chemicals that may be hazardous to little critters’ health. Latex balloons that are released in large numbers burst at high altitudes and end up littering the wilderness or eaten by small animals attracted to the bright colors.
