Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
"Creating a strong business and building a better world are not conflicting goals - they are both essential ingredients for
- Bill Ford -
Here at Website Magpie, we firmly believe in operating with the highest integrity. As a company, we put this belief into action through our environmental policies, green web hosting service, and our social responsibility through our charity work with World Vision and One Tree Planted.
Our clients can count on us to operate with the utmost integrity, because we don’t just care about making money, we are committed to serving our clients at the highest level. We believe that setting a good example is the best way to provoke sustainable, lasting change.
We are committed to making environmental corporate changes to reduce our carbon footprint.
Thinking green is just in our nature! We’ve reduced paper waste to a bare minimum, we avoid coffee filters and drink tap water by the glass to reduce our plastic waste.
We even have a very lovely ‘yoghurt pot herb garden’ and seedling nursery!
We use our own Green Web Hosting to power our business and we encourage all of our clients to do the same. Click the link to learn more.
Our hosting service is run entirely on renewable energy and is built from the ground up to be as energy efficient as possible, using wind and hydro-electric turbines in the UK; you can find out more here.
One of our chosen charities 'World Vision' is on the ground in some of the most impoverished countries in the world, teaching and assisting communities to support themselves.
The world is bigger than just us. We believe in extending our impact to support children and families living in poverty. As part of our corporate social responsibility initiative, we support a village in Sierra Leone that was badly affected by the Ebola epidemic in 2014. The disaster tore families apart and left many children orphaned.
The money that we donate every month is used to rebuild schools, expand hospitals, and improve homes. It also funds children’s uniforms and books, teacher trainings, maternity assistance, and breastfeeding classes, clean water and toilets.
Though we are half a world away, our efforts make a big difference in helping the community in Sierra Leone to put down solid roots for their future and we are immensely proud to be part of this wonderful charity.
If you would like to find out how you can support a whole community, please follow the link to World Vision.

Our Commitment To Clean Air
One Tree Planted is a not for profit global organisation committed to reforestation projects.
This forms part of our Green Web Hosting service we provide to customers. For every purchase you make and for every continuous year you renew your hosting package, we donate to One Tree Planted to help reforestation programmes in The Amazon Rainforest.
You will receive a thank you email with a certificate of your purchase with a unique tree number on it. Every year you are provided with an update and additional trees planted the longer you stay with us.
We also provide you with two digital badges for use on your website. One that tells visitors that your website is powered by 100% renewable energy and another badge that shows visitors your annual support towards One Tree Planted reforestation programme as part of your own CSR.
One Tree Planted is a fantastic organisation whose work doesn’t stop with the trees. They help to preserve high-risk habitats for critically endangered species, create “buffer” zones between nature reserves, conserve habitats for hundreds of species and provide sustainable livelihoods for local people including long-term jobs and education.
