We’re committed to regenerating the environment. That’s why for every month you’ve got an active felix subscription, we’ll plant a tree on your behalf. Together we can help reforest the planet
Did you know that approximately one soccer field of forest is lost every second? Each one of those trees could have been sequestering around 21kg of CO2 a year – that’s a lot of CO2 currently warming our atmosphere! Not cool.
We decided to do something about it, so we’ve partnered up with One Tree Planted (OTP) who are a non-profit organisation. They’re on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Our goal is to plant 1,000,000 trees by the end of 2022 and we need as many felix members as we can to help achieve this.
To help us get there, we've also made a few donations along the way, including contributing 25,000 additional trees for World Environment Day on the 5th of June, 2021.
Simply put, the more trees we have, the better our planet is.
Just for having an active felix subscription, we’ll make sure for every month you’re with us, a tree is planted. Trees are planted all year round with the help of One Tree Planted’s reforestation partners in over 10 regions around the world.
One Tree Planted pools the donations for trees and sends the funds to on-the-ground projects. Essentially you’re supporting a cute little sapling to be grown in local nurseries, planted, and cared for in the early stages of life.
They work on projects that range from planting native trees for threatened species right here in Australia, to planting fruit trees in India, to protecting forest ecosystems in the Andes.
Planting season in each region lasts around three months during the rainy season, so projects can only take place in each region at certain times of the year.
At the end of each project, we’ll send you a report that tells you all the details about our most recent tree planting progress that you’ve contributed to just by sticking with us. This will include the tree species, the number of trees that have been planted, and the other great benefits that are realised in those areas being reforested.

We’ll try our best to make sure the trees you’ve contributed are planted as soon as possible, but sometimes mother nature intervenes and we need to wait for a suitable time. Typically a tree is planted within 18 months of each monthly subscription.
Whilst we can never guarantee that every tree reaches maturity (that’s mother nature for you!), thanks to you, the trees that do, make a positive difference to the planet.

Our partner, One Tree Planted, supports a number of local projects around Australia. These projects focus on bushfire recovery, habitat restoration and creation, soil regeneration and community volunteering. The first project we are supporting will help with the creation of new tree nurseries and ultimately plant trees in National Parks as well as private lands that were damaged by the 2019/2020 fire season.

One Tree Planted - tree planting initiative
One tree planted for every month you're with us with an active $35 felix subscription (Eligible Subscription). Trees are planted by our vendor One Tree Planted, by forecast in advance or retrospectively, but usually within 18 months of each monthly Eligible Subscription, of varying species and in varying locations in Australia and/or around the world. We will provide you with general progress updates periodically. We make no representations or guarantee as to the health and lifespan of any tree planted, including whether any tree reaches maturity. For every month your Eligible Subscription is paused, a tree will not be contributed. If your Eligible Subscription is cancelled, your tree contribution will also cease. Felix Mobile reserves the right to change the environmental model it chooses to invest in, of which tree planting with One Tree Planted is an example. Subject to change. T&C apply.
