Where does rubber come from

Where does rubber come from?

One of the topics discussed in this month’s edition of forest matters is where does rubber come from?

Car tyres, balloons, the soles on our shoes, rubber bands, and also wellies are all made from rubber. But where does it actually come from?

It is sourced from the sap of rubber trees!

Synthetic products are also available. However, these come from a non-renewable source. They also tend to be weaker and less flexible.

Therefore natural rubber becomes an essential product in our everyday lives and we must ensure that it comes from responsible sources.

Find further information about this on their How natural rubber could be harming the world’s forest blog post.
