Charities we support
At our offices in Leicester we're always busy building great websites. However, we do feel it's important to stop for a moment and think about those who are less fortunate than ourselves. For this reason, in 2016 and throughout 2017 we're pleased to offer our support to the charities listed below.
- Cancer Research UK
- Make a Wish Foundation
- Water Aid
It's important to realise that nobody wants to pay over the odds for their website and giving to charity is a personal decision. Therefore, the Directors at 1st WebDesigns make voluntarily contributions to these charities from their own salaries.
Our main priority is looking after our clients, but we realise there's a lot we can do to look after the planet at the same time. To this end, we are always looking for new ways of working to reduce the impact our business has on the environment. So far we have implemented the following policies:
- We recycle all of our paper waste.
- We turn off lights and IT equipment that are not in use.
- We now provide tap water at meetings rather than bottled water.
- We opt to receive our suppliers' bills electronically where possible.
In 2018 we are aiming to become even more environmentally friendly by:
- Investing in a new e-billing system. This will reduce the amount of postage, envelopes and paper that we use.
- We will be switching to recycled paper, where possible.
