We’re doing our part to make the world a greener, more inclusive place
The global social, ecological and discriminatory challenges of the day are too big for any one company to fix, but we’re committed to helping the environment, our communities and each other where possible.
That’s why we strive to use organic, recycled, ethically, and locally sourced materials for our in-house and client work. And we try to promote an environmentally friendly, plastic-free workplace. We also use regional companies to support the local economy while reducing our carbon footprint, and we support local charities and events.
We do what we can. And we’re always keen to do more.
At Affinity we aim to make a positive long-term contribution to society and the environment. We’re committed to making the necessary changes that will benefit the wider world, and to encourage progressive change in our own communities.Max Edwards, Group Managing Director
After a tense and closely run competition, Max has been crowned the victor with his beautiful little Bonsai (the only one that actually survived the whole year). He’s donating his £70 winnings to The Nick Alexander Memorial Trust, who donate musical equipment to community groups and small charities across the country.
We have a charity of the year which we help and do pro-bono work for – this year we‘ve chosen the YMCA. Not only do they unlock the potential of young people throughout the community, but they also provide much needed accommodation and support to the most vulnerable people in our county. They do so much for others, that we’re honoured to be able to help them.
We’ve twinned our toilets with ones in impoverished countries, helping to funds access to clean water, hygiene, education and basic sanitation. We even have a certificate hanging in the throne rooms!
A hardy goat is the gift of sustainability, which means fertilizer and food for families—especially those living in areas that cannot support less-durable critters. The goats are provided fully vaccinated and are guaranteed to be fit and healthy, allowing their new owners to earn a living from the milk, manure and kids.
We have sourced plastic free environmentally friendly versions of all our sanitary needs from ‘Ernies Eco Store’ locally based in Norwich.
We exclusively use Who Gives A Crap toilet paper in the office. They’re made entirely from environmentally friendly materials and 50% of their profits go to helping build toilets for people in need. Over £1.5 million has been donated so far, and we’re proud to play our small part in that.
Blue Bear is committed to maintaining a slavery free supply chain, specifically sourcing its coffee from independent farmers across the developing world.
We plan on making a difference locally, nationally and internationally by supporting and working with organisations all over the world…
We’re all part of the same society, the same community, and the same planet. That’s why it’s so important to us to support the places that we call home.
