Hevea combines the best of Danish design for heritage, simplicity and functionality with a philosophy to do everything they do in as sustainable a way as possible. This is both a constant challenge and joy for them! Hevea strive to be sustainable and do their best to be a responsible company right through all of our business practices. They continue to look for innovative ways to overcome those challenges to re-duce, re-use, re-cycle and even up-cycle if possible.
Hevea take their name from the Latin name for the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis. The natural rubber the tree produces is the foundation of the product range. Natural rubber is biodegradable and has the ability to be broken down physically and/or chemically by microorganisms – usually requiring exposure to sunlight, air and moisture. The natural rubber used is tapped in Malaysia, where Hevea pay a percentage of the raw rubber costs to the Malaysian Rubber board, which in return helps to create a sustainable industry by replanting rubber trees and investing research & development towards sustaining the viability of the rubber industry in Malaysia.
All Hevea packaging is FSC certified and accessories are made from pure organic cotton, which meets the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).
Hevea pacifiers meet the standards of safety regulations EN1400, AS/NZS ISO 8124, and ASTM. Their bath toys, toys and teethers all comply with safety regulations EN 71, AUS/NZ ISO, and ASTM. For the soother holders Hevea have chosen to add a wooden clip to ensure that we comply with EN12586 standards which are very hard to meet.
