We’re proud to support the local community, as well as the environment. Here are some of our programs that give a helping hand:
We support several community groups – why not find out if we can give your community or non-profit group a discount too?
- Thornburn Ladies’ Badminton Association – website development at a significant discount
- Yarrambat Preschool – website development at a significant discount
- Guild Wars Guild Ekoc – free domain & installation of phpBB (PHP Bulletin Board/forum software)
- Obscurity Mod – website development at a significant discount
- Guild Dragon Estos – installation of WordPress
We love ideas that help our environment, and we really love the colour green! In our working areas, we strive to reduce the impact on the environment. Here are some of the things we do to help make our workplace ‘green’:
- All cardboard and paper is recycled (sensitive documents are shredded first)
- We send invoices and documents via email wherever possible
- Laser printers are only turned on when needed (Laser printers still draw about 1/3 of their power when set to standby)
- We use LCD monitors – those big bulky CRT monitors use significantly more energy
- Whenever possible, we open the blinds instead of using the lights, and open the windows instead of using the air-conditioning
- We use the National Australia Bank – a carbon neutral business
If you have any more suggestions on how we can keep our office environmentally friendly, let us know!
