About Natural Rubber
Story of Natural Rubber: Ecopacifier, Ecoteether, and EcoBlocks are made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree, Hevea brasillensi. These trees are sustainably grown in plantations in Malaysia. The rubber tree exudes a latex sap, the world’s primary source of natural rubber, which is tapped in a similar manner to maple syrup from a maple tree. After about 20-25 years the tree stops producing latex sap. The trees are then harvested and replanted. The harvested wood is used extensively in furniture, flooring, construction and even toys. From seed to tree to ecoteether to wooden toys, our all natural rubber children’s blocks have an eco-friendly, sustainable, and high quality life.
Ecopiggy essentials are sustainably made in Malaysia. Ecopiggy is committed to offering the highest quality, natural products. We feel it’s equally important to think of the overall footprint when manufacturing products, so we produce our natural rubber pacifiers right at the source of natural rubber!
Please Note: Ecopiggy products are made from 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Tree. Various conditions including humidity, temperature, season of harvest, etc. can effect the color (making product appear darker or lighter), and smell (scent of natural rubber). The beauty of 100% natural products is that their variability is a confirmation of nature itself--the tree in spring is much different than the tree in autumn.
