WHY WE USE ALL NATURAL RUBBER

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable

  • Natural rubber is derived from the Rubber tree through a tapping process, ensuring the trees are not chopped down during harvesting.
  • Rubber trees absorb carbon dioxide during latex production, contributing to carbon fixation and aiding in the fight against climate change.
  • Rubber plantations promote reforestation, with a single tree fixing and adding 1 metric ton of carbon over its 30-year cycle.

Sustainable Income and Community Support

  • Sri Lanka, where high-quality latex is cultivated, small crop farmers and plantation workers benefit from sustainable income.
  • The Sri Lanka Rubber Institute supports crop farmers in managing, controlling, and reforesting their rubber plantations, providing long-term projects and employment opportunities.

Durable and Long-Lasting

  • Natural rubber has inherent strength and resilience, making it highly durable for various applications.
  • Rubberware products that are offered by Sweepa, are designed to withstand wear and tear, ensuring a longer lifespan compared to synthetic alternatives.

Agronomic and Soil Conservation Benefits

  • Rubber plantations contribute to soil conservation, especially on hillsides where other crops may struggle to grow.
  • The fallen leaves from rubber trees enhance soil fertility, promoting multi-crop cultivation, including coffee, cocoa, and vanilla.

Carbon Sequestration and Green Production

  • A single rubber tree can sequester a significant amount of carbon, making it an effective contributor to carbon credits.
  • Natural rubber production is environmentally friendly, and the constant cycle of planting new trees ensures ongoing carbon sequestration.

Hypoallergenic and Anti-Bacterial

  • Natural rubber is hypoallergenic, making it an ideal choice for various applications, especially in products that come in direct contact with the skin.
  • The material also exhibits natural anti-bacterial properties, adding to its hygienic qualities.

Biodegradable and Versatile

  • Natural rubber is biodegradable, meaning it breaks down naturally over time, reducing environmental impact.
  • Sweepa Rubberware products are versatile and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, in wet or dry conditions.

Elasticity and Memory

  • The natural rubber polymer possesses exceptional elasticity and memory, ensuring that products maintain their shape and functionality over time.
