Better for our people

With a focus on building and developing an equitable workplace for our team and our suppliers, Feltex is committed to understanding, monitoring, and managing our social, environmental and economic impacts and to contribute to improvements in the communities in which we are based, operate and partner with.

Feltex is partnering locally and globally to improve lives where our team members, customers, and stakeholders live and work.

Supporting Global Oceans

Take 3 for the Sea

Home to such diverse life, we are actively participating in keeping our oceans free from pollution.

We've partnered with Take 3 for the Sea, who have created a movement that champions individual actions and uses a simple solution for a complex problem – each time you leave the beach or waterway, take 3 pieces of rubbish with you.

We make an annual donation to Take 3 for the Sea, contributing to ocean clean-ups and education programs for schools and local communities.

Supporting Local

We donate our end-of-life timber pallets to the various local Men’s Sheds who in turn break them down and turn them into fire wood. We also donate scrap materials, such as carpet off cuts, pallet dividers and yarn cones to various schools that they use in art classes.

Donations were made to Geelong Connected Communities which in turn donates to various charities/not-for-profit organisations, events and causes in the Geelong region in the areas of health and wellbeing, environment, sport, arts, youth, disability and community projects.

We donate to Geelong Mum’s, the Salvation Army Christmas Luncheon for the lonely, MS Australia, Give Where You Live, Cottage by the Sea, local Lions Club branches (for specific events/causes), Wombat’s Wish and we have donated flooring products to various causes such as Cockatoo Rise War Veterans Retreat, Samaritans House Geelong (homeless accommodation), Yarrawonga Lion’s Clubs Chemotherapy Turban Project, the Leopold Memorial Park Sports Pavilion, Geelong Mums, and Geelong YMCA.

In our commitment to community welfare and sustainability, we've partnered with Habitat for Humanity in New Zealand. When our surplus products are no longer needed, we donate carpets to furnish homes for families in need. This initiative provides them the opportunity to live in dry and healthy environments, showcasing our support for local communities and well-being.
