Did you know that 1 tree absorbs on average 1000 kg of CO2 throughout its lifetime. This is equivalent to approximately 1400 km or 150 daily trips by car.
Our forests purify the air we breathe, reduce ozone levels and erosion, stabilise air temperatures and are home to millions of species for food and shelter. They are a vital part of our lives. Yet globally, we are allowing over 10 million hectares of rainforests to disappear every year. At this pace, they may completely vanish in the next 100 years!
“Our future generations deserve a healthy planet and we must restore what we have taken away!”
Our climate is changing fast, with unprecedented wildfires & flooding occurring all over the world. To be a part of the solution Heveya® has partnered with Replant.world to plant trees across the globe and restore the precious biodiversity that protects life on earth.
The Dayak indigenous people play a key role in the maintenance, preservation and conservation of the rich biodiversity of Borneo, one of the most magnificent rainforests in the world. They have been managing the rainforests in sustainable ways for centuries, passing their valuable knowledge and measures of conservation from one generation to another.
Due to their dependence on the forests for food and shelter, they have developed deep-rooted respect and need to protect their land, which makes them the best people to help with reforestation. We need our indigenous communities and they must be protected!
With your continuous support, we are able to plant trees that provide valuable resources and jobs for these local communities that help build resilience against extractive industries & damaging development, ultimately creating a sustainable ecosystem between nature and its people.
Our future depends on our forests. As a customer, you are directly contributing to Heveya's reforestation efforts, creating a positive impact on global forests and communities. Supporting us through purchases not only enables tree planting but also grants you ownership of a tree in the form of a token. Each purchase allows you to receive up to 20 trees in your name. For maximum transparency and impact, Replant.world uses an innovative tool to capture, verify, and digitize each tree, enabling you to track them worldwide.
To restore forests, we need to get everyone involved. Give away your tree tokens to friends or family and we will give you up to 5 additional trees.
Our commitment to conserving natural resources involves close collaboration with our suppliers, ensuring that materials are sustainably sourced. We aim to provide customers not only with quality products but also those that positively contribute to the environment. Using natural elements like latex, bamboo, cotton, linen, and teak wood offers benefits to the Earth throughout their entire lifecycle.
The natural latex used in our mattresses comes from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree, one of the most ecological trees globally, neutralizing over 90 million tons of CO2 annually. These trees clean the air, prevent erosion and at the end of their life-cycle, they can serve as a perfect alternative for tropical hardwood in furniture, ultimately preventing the cutting of tropical rainforest trees.
Being a surface feeder, rubber trees afford good soil binding and erodibility of soil is considerably reduced. The thick canopy helps to cut down direct radiation and intercepts rain.
Bamboo shoots store water in their hollow spaces. They release water in the dry season and thus decreases the possibility of drought.
Our mattresses are made of pure natural latex rubber foam - free of pesticides, heavy metals, VOCs or glues that may put your health and the earth in harm's way. We source natural materials that cause minimal harm to the earth. Organic natural latex, organic cotton, and bamboo plants don’t use pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Therefore the soil is not polluted and the farmers don’t deal with harmful chemicals. We actively collaborate with our suppliers to uphold these standards
Latex Mattress Production
For our latex mattresses, wastewater recycling is implemented throughout the production process. Our supplier has invested in wastewater recycling technology, purifying the wastewater intensively for subsequent reuse.
Bamboo Sheets Production
Our bamboo sheets are made from bamboo lyocell, a wood-based fiber manufactured through modern methods which require less energy and using a closed-loop process, reducing water consumption and waste.
The mattress landfill crisis is a huge environmental concern that is often neglected. Most traditional polyurethane foam mattresses are made to be replaced every 5-7 years. Once disposed, these mattresses can take up to 1000 years to completely be decompose.
Heveya® embraces the circularity model. We emphasizes the importance of selecting products that are built to last, have a longer lifecycle, and can be recycled or reused. This longevity reduces the frequency of replacements, minimizing the overall demand for raw materials and manufacturing processes.
To complete the circle, we've established a take-back program for preloved Heveya® mattresses. At the end of your mattress' lifespan, we offer free pickup services, delivering the mattresses back to our supplier, where they are expertly broken down. The latex is then shredded and repurposed in the creation of rebonded latex (eg: soundproofing board, wall insulation), extending their lifespan and minimizing our waste.
Additionally we welcome any clean bed sheets donations here at Heveya®, which then are collected and recycled by our partners at Greensquare - they provide free textile recycling services all around Singapore with a mission to conserve natural resources and reduce environmental pollution. The donated sheets are either upcycled for new textile projects or making their way in homes of people in need!
Beyond our commitment to working with like-minded suppliers and organizations, we prioritize sustainable practices within our company on a daily basis. We use green electricity sources at our workplace – our people are also encouraged to form eco-friendly practices such as fresh indoor planting, printing on recycled or FSC labeled paper, switching to public transportation – and the list goes on!
These sustainability initiatives are not just casual gestures; they are ingrained in our company culture, documented in our employee handbook, and subject to annual policy reviews to ensure continuous improvement.
We work together with suppliers who can offer certificates that meet our social, environmental and ethical criteria, considering factors such as sustainable raw materials, durability, safety of our sleepers and Earth
Our products comply with the 'Eurolatex Eco Standard'. The tests were carried out by the Aachen-based 'Deutsches Teppich Forschungsinstitut e.V.' (TFI.). Our products hereby comply with the environmental criteria for the award of the Ecolabel according to the European guideline (2002/740/EC).
Our products comply with the Öeko-Tex Standard 100' certificate, CLASS 1. These tests on harmful substances show that our products pose no risk to the sleeper and the environment.
Indonesian Legal Wood certifies that our teakwood furniture is obtained from trees from forests that are grown ethically, sustainably and legal for manufacturing.
European Flax® certifies that our linen is sourced from a premium linen fiber grown in Western Europe. This fibre is naturally sustainable, GMO free and cultivated without irrigation.
WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certifies that our bedding supplier treats their workers with dignity and respect, and are conscious of the impact their operation has on the environment.
Ecocert® is an organic certification and inspection body which certifies that our products are sourced from renewable resources and manufactured using only environmentally friendly practices.
The future of humanity now depends on us. Our environment is an exhaustible resource that must be preserved and it is our responsibility to leave our future generations with a healthy planet. As a socially conscious business, we take it upon ourselves to contribute to sustainable environmental practices that help minimize pollution and conserve resources like water and energy.
Every year, Heveya® works together with Replant World to plant
trees in Borneo, one of the most magnificent rainforest in the world.
Each tree planted provides nutrients for the soil, stops erosion and absorbs about
lbs (on avg.) of CO2 per year and regulates global temperature through evapotranspiration, ultimately tackling global warming.
Bamboo is the most resource efficient plant on earth. It produces
fewer carbon emissions, 25.9kg – the equivalent to driving 64 miles.
We use a closed-loop manufacturing process meaning that the solution used to make bamboo fibres out of the bamboo pulp is
recaptured and reused.
One Queen mattress requires 12 acres of rubber plantations to be tapped. This number of trees absorb
tonnes of CO2 from the air every year and help provide employment opportunities for 8 rubber tappers.
One hectare of flax can take
tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere. Also, the entire flax plant can be woven into a fibre, leaving 0 waste behind from the spinning and weaving process.
Flax linen can last for
years worth of wear and tear, making it the most durable fabric in the market. When disposed, it is 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
