FleXband exercise bands are made from natural rubber latex is tapped from hevea brasilliensis rubber trees. As such, Malaysia natural rubber is an environmental friendly and renewable resource.
1. Atmospheric Air Renewal
Studies shows that rubber trees planted worldwide can remove 363,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, replacing it with 264,000 tonnes of oxygen through photosynthesis.
2. Renewable and sustainable resource
Backed by more than 75 years of hevea brasilliensis species has been bred to the most efficient source of rubber latex. It is planted a density of 450 trees per hectare. At the end of each lifecycle of 30 years, the trees are fell for timber and the area is replanted.
3. Biodegradability of natural rubber
Natural rubber and its products are biodegrade through a natural biological process.
Incineration of products made of natural rubber does not result in harmful gas emission, unlike those made from synthetic rubber.
