The natural rubber for the hot water bottle comes from a plantation in Sri Lanka. At this plantation they are working in a sustainable way with respect for the environment and the rubber trees. This advances biodiversity. The label of the Forest Stewardship Council on the hot water bottle confirms that sustainable forestry. The plantation is also being socially responsible. The fair trade premium for each kilo of rubber is used to improve the living conditions of the workers. Workers and management decide collectively on the use of the surcharge. This has, among other things, financed a project for clean drinking water. It has also provided electricity on the plantation and the village.
