Shortly after becoming a mother, Terese Hoffeldt encountered a common conundrum among new parents; was she doing everything right? And more importantly, what is right? While confident in her deep love for and connection to her child, she wondered if the products with which she was surrounding her were the very best. When Terese looked at what was available, everything she found was plastic - pacifiers, toys, teethers, you name it! She knew that there had to be other alternatives, ones that were safer for her child and kinder to our planet.

After immense research, Terese came across the ideal material: Natural Rubber! Durable, non-toxic, and primed to be molded into adorable shapes, its potential was endless! From there, HEVEA was born. The brand is focused on safe and eco-friendly options for babies (and puppies!) that are both effective and full of fun!

In addition to providing items that calm teething babies, make bath time exciting, and entertain new pups, HEVEA is run on a core mission of taking the guesswork out of making safe choices for little ones. The power of sustainable materials and sweet, simple Scandinavian design makes HEVEA total parenting win!

The planet carries our fingerprint

HEVEA places enormous emphasis on creating playful products that are gentle on our planet and safe for our kiddos. Each non-toxic item, whether a puppy chew-toy or a brightly colored pacifier, is made from 100% Natural Rubber and sustainably sourced from Malaysian Rubber Trees. Not only is natural rubber an excellent alternative to synthetic, petroleum-based options, it also boasts the unique ability to fully break down at the end of its life. Additionally, all of HEVEA's packaging is also compostable! HEVEA is passionate about waste management and is careful not to let any materials go without use. Any packaging leftover from the manufacturing process is re-used or turned into alternative products, whether that be postcards, business cards, or in-store materials. They also offer a unique recycling program for their pacifiers, upcycling them from tired, worn-out rubber into innovative and new products!
