Clean up; We track our lanterns flight travel and send out a clean up crew to where they land to retrieve them. If one gets missed, it’s biodegradable so it causes no harm to the environment as it breaks down rather quickly.
Safety; Today’s Sky Lanterns pose no harm to animals or the environment as they are not made with the materials of the past. We do not attempt to release lanterns when the wind is 10 mph or higher, we do not release them in the rain where it could cause them to prematurely begin to descend. Sky Lanterns are like hot air balloons, the fire is used for them to take flight, and the lantern doesn’t begin to descend until the fuel cell is barely lit, therefore they will not fall prematurely and catch anything on fire.
We watch the weather very closely and will reschedule an event if weather conditions are not right to release them. We also give out a flyer instructing attendees how to properly lite and release their lantern, as well as demonstrating during the event.
Light The Night only uses Premium ECO Friendly Water Lanterns
Details; Our Water Lanterns are made with Eco Friendly Rice Paper, Untreated Wood, and an LED Tea Light instead of real fire.
Clean Up; We use boats and an above water line that prevents the lanterns from going any further than predetermined. WE DO NOT USE fishing nets that go down into the water which can tangle up any marine life.
Safety; There are no safety risks with Water Lanterns. No fire is used in their release, they’re made of eco friendly material, we collect every single lantern, and we do not use fishing nets or anything that goes down into the water to stop their flow, but instead above an above water line.
