Sarah Depoortere says, “We’ll work with suppliers anywhere in the world, provided they manage to balance these factors.” So, a company working on creating products with recycled plastic or putting waste-water solutions in place might be ideal for a collaboration. It’s all about finding the right company – one that works with its employees in the right way, and offers quality products that are the most sustainable and natural, wherever they might be in the world. Heveya’s organic duvet and mattress protectors are from Germany, for instance, and their new vegan towels are from Portugal. “Our customers really value the fact that we only work with these sustainable partners,” adds Sarah. Heveya’s Belgian owner Stefan has been based in Asia for 25 years and now lives in Bali. He’s very committed to giving back, and has pledged to donate one percent of Heveya’s sales revenue towards charitable and sustainable institutions, regardless of profit. Working together with Replant and the indigenous Dayak people in Borneo, Heveya is aiming to plant 12,000 trees in areas of deforestation every year. These trees are not just good for the earth; they also provide valuable resources and jobs for these local communities, ultimately creating a sustainable ecosystem between nature and its people. Sumba Hospitality Foundation (SHF) is another sustainability partner that Heveya works with. Every year, Heveya sponsors the local Sumbanese community to study in SHF, whose mission is to help the eastern Indonesian island of Sumba to grow as a sustainable tourism development, while involving the local people, protecting the environment and showcasing the natural beauty of the area.
