FelinFach Gives Back – Planting Trees Worldwide

FelinFach Donations

Our Mission is to build sustainability into our strategy and operating methods and being part of a world better connected to the environment. That’s why we have partnered with the international Earth Day Network and specifically the Canopy Project, to plant a tree somewhere in the world for every product we sell.

As a small business, we will never change the world on our own, but we wish to make our contribution, or to "give back" something to improving the environment. By partnering with The Earth Day Network, the world’s largest environmental movement, we are joining an international commitment to improving the world’s environment.

By planting trees today, there will be a forest tomorrow. We aim to help to restore forests that have been lost to deforestation. Every donation we can make to the Planting Trees Worldwide project funds the nurturing, planting, and protecting of one tree that will help restore a forest for wildlife.

Canopy Project

Since 2010, the Earth Day Network Canopy Project has planted tens of millions of trees, working worldwide to strengthen communities through tree-planting. Using agroforestry and tree care training, it empowers organisations and citizens to conserve, repair, and restore tree cover to their lands.

Earth Day Network targets areas of the world most in need of reforestation, including some of the world’s poorest communities; and land degraded by logging, fires, drought, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes.

The benefits of trees are extraordinary. Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change. In just one year, a mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen as 10 people inhale!

The current Canopy Project goal for the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Earth Day Network is to plant 7.8 billion trees worldwide, one for every person on earth. Planting trees strengthens local economies – for every Pound or Dollar spent on reforestation generates local incomes and benefits by a factor of 2.5 to 1, a huge impact for the local economies.

FelinFach Sustainability and Environment Policy

Mission statement

Building sustainability into our strategy and operating methods.

Policy aims

We will continually reduce environmental impacts and incorporate environmental factors into all our business decisions. We will favour more environmentally friendly and efficient products and we will reuse and recycle everything we are able to. We will establish our carbon footprint and take steps to reduce it over time.

Production materials - wool, cotton, silk, leather, paper and dyes

We aim to source our materials from ethical suppliers as close to our business as possible. All dyes used to colour our materials are derived from plant or insect-based dyestuffs – no acidic or chemical dyes are used at all.

Transportation and packaging

We will reduce our packaging requirements as much as possible and seek alternatives that are biodegradable but also water resistant, where required. We will monitor the environmental performance of our transportation couriers and incorporate such performance into our decision-making processes.

Energy and water

We will seek to reduce the amount of energy and water used and seek green energy tariffs wherever possible.

Monitoring and reporting

We will review this policy on a six-monthly basis and report accordingly.
