• Bath time fun with Kawan, the PVC-free natural rubber duck

    September 23, 2016 • ECO HOME

    There are many products on the market that provide a safe and non-toxic alternative to baby toys and soothers that are made of PVC.

    100% natural rubber toys that are made from the Hevea Brasilensis plant are non-toxic to humans and are safe for babies and young children to play with. Plus, natural rubber is biodegradable, and is able to be broken down by microorganisms. Synthetic plastics on the other hand can take over 450 years to decompose.

    Named Kawan, which means friendly in Malay, he is full of character, soft, malleable, and easy for tiny hands to grasp. Plus the patterned texture on the beak and feet makes him ideal for soothing and massaging irritated gums.

    Hevea strives to be a responsible and sustainable company through all of their business practices. Despite facing a range of challenges, they continue look for innovative ways to overcome them to reduce, re-use and even up-cycle where possible.

    Hevea uses natural rubber that has been tapped in Malaysia. They also work closely with the Malaysian Rubber Board to ensure the rubber industry in Malaysia remains sustainable.

    Furthermore, all packaging used by Hevea is FSC certified. This is a guarantee that the paper (or timber) comes from a responsibly managed forest, preventing deforestation and degradation.
