Sustainability provides the best survival conditions for people and the environment – now and in the future. Hevea is sustainable, because Hevea will do its best to look always for new cost-saving opportunities, reuse and recycling options. The products of Hevea are made of 100 % natural rubber. Natural rubber is a natural and environmentally friendly material that is obtained from trees of a sustainable plantation in Malaysia. The packaging is made from biodegradable recycling material.
The rubber trees grow in tropical regions. The trees are between 15 and 30 meters tall and have a trunk diameter of up to one meter. The trees are between five and eight years old before the plantation workers can harvest the first latex. To get the latex, the bark it is cut at an angle. Usually this happens before dawn, when the sap flows best. If a rubber tree is handled carefully, it provides latex until it is 40 years old. Natural rubber instead of synthetic rubber produced from oil acts against climate change. By increasing the number of trees less fossil fuels are consumed. Rubber trees provide work for around 30 million people around the world.
