Child with HEVEA natural rubber bath toy

 

We love bringing you products that are sustainable, natural and better all round for your family and the planet. 

That’s why we're big fans of HEVEA natural rubber products for kids!

Natural rubber is a great replacement for many kinds of plastic. It comes from a natural rubber sap collected from the Hevea Brasisliensis tree. These trees have a straight trunk and grow an impressive 75 feet or more over their lifetime, with mature trees having a diameter of around 3 feet…!

There are many good reasons to choose natural rubber products and some gorgeous choices to help you make the switch today.

Some of you have got in touch with questions about this topic, so we wanted to share with you the correct waste disposal methods for your eco disposable nappies. And to let you know why they are a much better environmental option than conventional disposable nappies.

 ‘Weird question but what bin in Ireland takes the biodegradable nappies? Will the green bin take them - just some companies are strict’?

‘As they are biodegradable nappies, can you place them in the brown bin? Sorry if that seems like a really silly question’

‘I'm enquiring about the Kit & Kin nappies. Can these be put in your garden compost bin and if so roughly how long do they take to decompose in a compost bin?’

In addition to the question of how many layers to put on them, we are often wondering what materials are actually safe for their delicate skin. It seems that many centuries ago dressing babies and children was a lot simpler! Clothes were made from wool and babies were wrapped in lamb or sheepskin.

Both natural materials are not just free from chemicals but have many other benefits. This is why products made from natural fibres such as lambswool are making a come back in modern eco-conscious homes, and not just for the winter. Read on to find out why!
