Trying to be Greener...

We have always aimed to operate our business as sustainably as we can. In January 2021, we became carbon neutral with a net zero-carbon footprint! The fundamental part of almost all our products is wool and wool is one of the most sustainable products there is. Most of our products are handmade, and hence we have no carbon emissions from manufacturing or other similar high carbon emission activities. Read on on a Carbon Neutral Company.

Environmental Update - April 2021  Update

Our carbon offsets purchased have supported forest protection initiatives, as follows;

  1. Estimated area of forest protected, 401.9 m²
  2. Equivalent number of tree seedlings protected, 53

FelinFach is too small to 'change the world', but we are making a contribution to that goal.

 Sustainability and Environmental Statistics - February 2021

  1. All electricity consumed by FelinFach is now from 100% renewable energy, from UK windfarms - powered supplied by Scottish Power.
  2. Our parcels travelled 95,764 kilometres to the customer destinations
  3. Shipping our parcels and other activities produced 33.5 kg of CO₂ emissions, equivalent to
    • 4,267.9smart phones charged
    • 14.3 litters of petrol consumed

Here’s how our Offset contributions have supported forest protection initiatives.

Estimated area of forest protected - 316.6 m²

Equivalent number of tree seedlings protected - 42

Our contributions are currently funding the Jarí Para Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon Rainforest.
