You think that the campaign of being “environment-friendly” is supported by only citizens and politicians? That’s not true! India’s first-ever integrated crowdsourcing platform Designhill.com is taking this initiative to the next level by Going Green, quite literally.
Designhill.com is an online marketplace for graphic design, graphics, logo design, banner design, packaging design, merchandise design, web design and many other designing works. It’s office is located in Gurgaon and New Delhi in India and in USA. And the company has surely showed their passion towards a greener, sustainable and eco-friendly world by completely rebranding their entire website in ‘green’. Right from CTA buttons to the layout, everything has been turned green in color on their website.
The design industry is always influenced by the latest trends and Designhill wants to be the first to promote and educate its users about the benefits of a more eco-friendly approach to life. As they say charity begins at home, Designhill has started this campaign to make this world a better place from their workplace itself.
According to the Co-founder, Rahul Agarwal, “Going green does not only mean saving trees, it’s also about spreading awareness and creating an environment conscious atmosphere among employees, designers as well as clients. And company’s first going green effort includes rebranding the entire website in green.”
“Promoting eco-friendly methods can help you set your business apart from your competitors and draw the attention of new customers. I am sure people would love to buy products and services from an environmentally-friendly business (and website). Also, it will help us attracting an retaining staff,” added Rahul.
The company has already taken many initiatives to decrease it’s impact on the planet. The first thing they started with was skipping the paper entirely. They encouraged their employees to avoid using paper as much as they could and even if they had to take out a print, use eco-friendly paper in that case. This way they saved on paper as well as created awareness amongst all it’s employees.
Secondly, Designhill has installed LED lights across their offices rather than using regular incandescent bulbs. Though LED or CFL bulbs are much more expensive than the regular bulbs, they save much more energy over a period of time.
The company has been encouraging car-pooling for colleagues that live nearby. Co-founder Varun Agarwal says that “We have always supported the use of non-motorized transport. As it is, there is so much hype about the car Free days or the odd even plan. We keep sending mails, time and again, about using public transport or car pooling and also hold meetings regarding the same. This increases banter time as well as team-building. A green world is what we look forward to”
Moving forward, the company is in the process of setting up of solar panels in their office (terrace) in order to get solar power. This will reduce the electricity bills considerably apart from making the environment more healthy.
By following these simple tips, Designhill has been able to cut much off their bills and make themselves more attractive to eco-conscious people. But the idea is not to stop here! They aim to make more from their green strategies. With a traffic of more than 100,000 visitors from across the globe, Designhill is all set to do their bit for the environment globally. Till the time it reaches each and every person associated with their industry and outside it!
