Who We Are
Based in Nantwich, Cheshire but serving the UK, our experience is pragmatic, results-driven, creative and supportive with expertise in web design, website development, e-commerce, media production and digital marketing.
We love variety and our account portfolio ranges from large online retailers to small owner-operated businesses, and everything in-between!
Climate Positive Agency
As a small digital agency with low, if not zero manufacturing, distribution and delivery footprints, our main focus is on our digital carbon footprint.
Connecting to the internet, sending an email, making a search in Google or simply saving and storing data on a server generates CO2 emissions.
How can we help to decarbonise our planet as well as support businesses like yours with their digital marketing, web design and media requirements?
The answer is Ecologi. We plant trees for the future & offset our current climate impact by investing in infrastructure projects around the world. We do this to cover our clients website traffic, digital marketing activity and our own employee's environmental impact. You can find out how long we have been a climate positive and how many trees we have planted so far here.
1% to Charity
1% of our revenue is donated to good causes picked by our team.
Simon (our MD) says "When I started Childsey, I was keen to build a brand that supported our local community, good causes & the environment. For the last couple of years, I have been thinking about the best way to achieve this.
We have been offsetting and reducing our environmental impact since launch, but we all wanted to do more for people in need both locally & further afield.
By linking our donations to our business performance we are ensuring that as we grow we can increase our positive impact at the same rate.”
From June 2022 , 1% of revenue will be donated to good causes picked by the team. Every member of the team has chosen a charity to support, we will independently verify our revenue on a quarterly basis & donate evenly across our team's chosen charities.”
Our chosen charities are; Global Witness, The Lullaby Trust, Alzheimer's Society, British Heart Foundation.
