I've just reviewed the funky Panda Tshirts from WWF here but here's another way to help the charity while buying things for the kids.


Hevea, the cool Danish eco baby lifestyle brand is extending its international commitment to supporting the work of the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) to include the UK.

As of 1st February, 2012 Hevea will donate £1 from the sale of every one of its award-winning Panda Teether, rrp currently £8.99.
Already working successfully in its home market Denmark, Terese Hoffeldt, founder of Hevea says of the agreement, “We have chosen to work together with WWF, as we truly believe in their work for a living planet, which matches Hevea sustainable thinking” says Terese Hoffeldt, founder of Hevea.
The ultimate goal is to work with the WWF in each country where Hevea is available.

Made from 100% natural rubber, Hevea Panda is soft and pliable, yet firm enough to provide light pressure to help soothe aching and tender gums and alleviate soreness. Its surface has an ingrained panda bear pattern, providing a texturised surface for extra comfort when baby is chewing. And, the ergonomically designed ring-like cut-out in the middle of Panda’s tummy, and careful sizing, enables babies to easily grip and put it into their mouths safely. Panda can be cooled down by refrigerating it for a cooling effect on the gums.

Best for baby and best for the environment, each Panda is BPA, phthalates and PVC free, with no added colours. Even the packaging is made from FSC certified forest, to minimize the carbon footprint. The packaging is a cute giftbox, coloured in green with signature arty graphics.

Hevea Panda teether is also exceptionally hygienic. The solid design is cast in one piece, so there are no joints or cracks, where dribble, dirt and bacteria can accumulate. Easy to clean and maintain, as it can be dipped into boiling water to sterilise.

As a brand, Hevea works consistently to improve its ethical credentials in all its business and trading practices with its international partners, supporting them also in their efforts as ethical businesses. It supports fair trade, social enterprise and sustainability. In addition, Hevea also strives to reduce and offset its environmental impact.

In 2011, Panda received the influential Parent Tested, Parent Approved Award (PTPA) in the US. In the UK, Hevea has been nominated as a finalist in the Practical Parenting and Pregnancy Awards for Best New Product under £20.

Hevea Panda is designed in Denmark and produced in Malaysia. The name ”Hevea” originates from the Latin name for a genus of rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis, which grows both in the wild and in plantations.

Hevea is available from Greenbaby, Whole Foods Market & Bebe Besou boutiques
