FelinFach signed up with Tree Nation in June 2021 as a part of our attempt to be greener in all our activities. For each product purchased on our website, we plant a tree somewhere in the world.
Our forest is growing and as of today (22nd December 2021) we have planted 1028 trees an saved 118.34 tonnes of CO2. Modest, but we are a small business trying to do our bit. Follow the link to our Forest to see the latest figures - Go to the FelinFach Forest
Our mission is to reforest the world. 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. Through the Tree-Nation platform we aim to bring a technological solution to the problem of Deforestation, responsible for about 17% of all Climate Change emissions. We want to use technology to make tree planting easy and provide support, advice and solutions to citizens and companies to help them transition towards a sustainable future. With 85% of all terrestrial species living in tropical forests, whose existences are intrinsically bound to the forests, their habitat, we care to restore and preserve the biodiversity to help avoid a mass extinction.
Tree-Nation was founded in 2006 by Maxime Renaudin. From one single project in the driest and poorest country on earth, Niger, the project quickly evolved to help local teams of planters around the world.
Tree-Nation has been constantly innovating and is the creator of many tools that are now commonly used by other NGOs in our sector. In particular Tree-Nation invented the virtual tree, then the online forest and many other software tools in order to provide a unique technological solution aimed at breaking the distance between remote projects and their sponsors in developed countries.
Recognized internationally and becoming an official partner of the UNEP in 2007, Tree-Nation has evolved to help +4000 companies and +200,000 users to plant more than 7 million trees in more than 30 reforestation projects on 6 continents.
