Founder, Terese Hoffeldt, started Hevea shortly after becoming a mother, wishing to make a difference in the world. The lack of natural options for future generations was what made her turn to Hevea Brasiliensis – natural rubber, and this has formed the basis of Hevea's mission: to develop the standards for what can be created using natural rubber and rubber wood, and put their sustainable fingerprint on the planet.
Hevea, or natural rubber, can replace many kinds of plastic. Hevea decomposes naturally and can be reused to make new products. Hevea strives to do their best to be a responsible company, through all of their business practices and they look for innovative ways to reduce, re-use, re-cycle and up-cycle where possible.
