Rubber trees are one of the best filtration systems that nature has to offer and for one hectare of rubber trees pulls out 250,000 metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere. Our rubber supplier also employs 30,000 local Sri Lankan citizens. They own their own plantations and in addition, 10%-15% of the rubber is provided straight from the citizens of the community through a co-op system based on their traditional beliefs. They are a publicly traded company under European Union this verifies that they are held accountable for employment pay and treatment requirements.
