Carbon Neutral Company

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.

All electricity consumed by FelinFach is now from 100% renewable energy, from UK windfarms - powered supplied by Scottish Power. Firstly, let's say it up front - no carbon emissions are better than buying carbon offsets to cover whatever emissions a company has. Going 100% renewable reduces our carbon emissions and also reduces our need to buy offsets.

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 - January 2021

  1. Our parcels travelled 67,989 kilometres to the customer destinations
  2. Shipping our parcels and other activities produced 42.5 kg of CO₂ emissions, equivalent to
    • 5,417 smart phones charged
    • 18 litters of petrol consumed

All the CO2 produced by these activities have been 100% offset, hence a carbon neutral company.
