What happens to the lanterns after the event?
Each one of our events is equipped with a full cleaning crew and lantern chasers who quite literally chase lanterns from the moment they are lit, following their entire trajectory, for a quick pickup. Our efficient crew continues a widespread search for lanterns before we leave our event location, sweeping the area during the lantern launch and into the days after.
This meticulous process takes a full 48 hours and three separate trips, during which the area is surveyed with extensive care. We pride ourselves on using ecologically harmless lanterns that are 100% biodegradable. Our lanterns simply contain rice paper, bamboo, and string— we are dedicated to leaving no footprint other than magic. We like to humblebrag that we leave grounds cleaner than when we arrived.
