100% Biodegradable

- Eco Friendly

At Lyte Sky Lantern Festival we only use eco-friendly 100% biodegradable sky lanterns.

All of our eco-friendly 100% biodegradable lanterns are made with rice paper, bamboo rings, natural fiber string, and a wax cake fuel cell.

- Cleanup

In addition to using eco-friendly 100% biodegradable sky lanterns at our events, we also track the travel of our sky lanterns and deploy a cleanup team to collect them once they land.

- Safety

Lyte Sky Lantern Festival is committed to providing a safe event for everyone. If the weather conditions are not ideal for a safe release we will reschedule the event. Just like with hot-air balloon festival if the weather is not perfect the launch cannot happen.
