Natural Rubber Bath Duck

by Hevea

Your baby's formative years are very important and Hevea put that to heart when designing their Kawan Rubberduck just for them. Made with 100% natural rubber, this beautiful piece of thoughtful work serves three functions; playing, teething, and bathing.

As our first colored toy, a lot of thought and work went into producing an eco-friendly companion for your child. Hand-painted to perfection with natural pigments, the colors help in the development of your baby's vision. Soft to touch and squeeze, they can also learn to master their grip. The beak and feet feature a patterned texture suitable for soothing itchy and irritated gums.

MATERIALS

100% Natural rubber is made from a milky latex sap from the Hevea Brasilensis, the rubber tree. The hevea tree has a valuable traditional life cycle. After planting, it takes 7 years for the hevea tree to be 'ripe' for rubber production. Then the tree can provide sap for 30-40 years while simultaneously absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. If the trees have to be felled, they are made into furniture under good working conditions. Natural rubber is biodegradable and compostable, this takes 5 years. A plastic bag, on the other hand, takes 500-1000 years!
