    Earth Day 2024 Mission - Planet vs. Plastic

    First held on April 22nd, 1970, Earth Day now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by Earthday.org. The official theme for 2024 is "Planet vs. Plastics" and will be the 55th anniversary of Earth Day. Earthday.org is unwavering in its commitment to end plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of ALL plastics by 2040. 

    FelinFach Committments to Sustainability

    Whilst Earth Day is an inspiration for us to redouble our efforts to be as sustainable as possible in our business activities, our sustainability aims are consistent all year long.

    We have always aimed to operate our business as sustainably as we can.

    • Tree Nation

      Working with Tree Nation, we plant one tree for every product ordered from our website. Planting trees has been proven to be one of the most efficient solutions to fight Climate Change. Thanks to our reforestation and conservation projects, we help to restore forests, create jobs, support local communities and protect biodiversity. Our forest is modest but growing.

    • Net Zero Website Activities

      We clean up after ourselves.The carbon emissions generated by our website are offset or reduced to zero by planting trees we buy from Tree Nation. Our website emissions, less our carbon offsets equal a net zero emissions website.

    • Plastic Freedom

      We believe that we are close to "Plastic Freedom". High-quality, sustainably sourced plastic-free packaging that doesn’t cost the earth. All of our packaging, parcel boxes and protective materials are recyclable or biodegradable and are 99.9% PLASTIC FREE. Over 99.9% of our products do not contain any plastic at all. As a matter of policy, we do not offer for sale plastic products.

    Earth Day 2024
