HEVEA STAR/MOON natural rubber soother - ortho teat
Sometimes looks do matter, and from the beginning the look and feel of HEVEA products has been at the centre of how HEVEA wants to leave the right fingerprints.
HEVEA’s design philosophy is driven by the limitation of doing everything in a safe and toxic-free way. This is both a challenge and a joy, and pushes us to continually design, develop and innovate. Challenging the way things are usually done is a part of our daily work, and never setting for less than the optimal and sustainable solution is how we make sure that the fingerprint we leave behind is sustainable for generations to come. With our Danish design heritage, simplicity and functionality define our solutions.
Everything is made for a reason, and each item has its own story and unique design.
Our company name Hevea is from the Latin name for the rubber tree, “Hevea Brasiliensis”, means natural rubber tree.
Rubber trees have a straight trunk and grown an impressive 23 metre/75 feet or more over their lifetime, with mature trees having a diameter of around 90cm/3 feet. The trees can be sustainably harvested for approximately 35 years.
By being exposed to sunlight, moist and fresh air, natural rubber has the ability to be broken down physically and chemically by microorganisms. Hevea products are made from the natural rubber sap and the wood, which is biodegradable. Using natural rubber and rubber wood, rather than synthetic rubber made from oil/petroleum, acts against climate change by increasing the number of trees and cutting back on the use of fossil fuels.
We truly want to be sustainable and strive to do our best to be a responsible company, through all of our business practices. We face many challenges, some very difficult, but we continue to look for innovative ways to overcome any challenges to reduce, re-use, re-cycle and up-cycle where possible.

YOUR PLANET YOUR FINGERPRINTS
The life you live tells and story - your story - and the beauty of that is that you can decide what the story should be about. You decide the plot and determine the main characters. We all live on your planet. Like you, we want to take care of the planet for your sake, for the sake of your children and their children.
Your planet is quite a demanding one. It doesn’t seem to agree with short-term solutions. That is why we keep our focus firmly on a long-term commitment to sustainable production of rubber tree products. That is what we are all about, and even though we know that we alone cannot save the world, we still think it is a small step in the right direction.
Your planet might favour the big ideas, and it might call for big steps, but getting there is something we can do together in a way that makes every small step count, to make sure that your planet - our planet - can be passed on safely for generations to come.
Everything you do affects our planet. We hat you eat, drive and buy has a real-life impact on our habitat. We all leave our fingerprints on the planet. And, luckily, we all get to decide what kind of fingerprints we leave. It’s our hope at HEVEA that our work, our products, will help you leave a fingerprint to be proud of.
CARING FOR THE PLANET WAS NEVER BORING
IT ACTUALLY LETS THE PARTY LAST LONGER
What do we do to ensure that our products are safe, non-toxic and of the highest quality? We test all our products with well-known international companies such as SGS, Intertek and Bureau Veritas, to meet standards in Europe, US, Canada and Australia. We “pull”-test every single pacifier to ensure that it can withstand the stress of usage. In order for us to identify the production date, batch codes are engraved into our products.
Recycling is essential to HEVEA, as it is a core component when thinking about reducing our fingerprints. We start at home, recycling our office and storage waste. We encourage and support our manufactures in recycling their production lines, by asking for ISO certification to ensure their approach is sustainable production is in line with ours, and of the high standard that we expect.
We strive towards operating a carbon neutral business. As part of our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint, we neutralise our transport by buying European CO2 allowances. See more at co2neutraltransportl.dk. We have neutralised our CO2 emissions from the use of our website. The result is green, climate-friendly surfing for our customers and visitors.

We like to reuse things, as this is both beneficial to environment but often also cost saving. We reuse all packaging which we get. We always save and reuse leftovers from our packaging for business cards, post cards, memory games and in-store material. We like to encourage you to reuse our product packaging - see some of the great ideas on Facebook and inside the packs.
At HEVEA, we hate waste but we love up cycling, so we have been investigating how we can re-use old pacifiers to make something new. Now we have found a way to upcycle the rubber, making new products. Read more at www.heveaplanet.com/upcycling and do send us your used pacifiers.
