Helping An Anti-Poverty Community Move Forward

At HappyPorch we aim to work with organisations who are making the world a better place, and one of the ways we do this is through our pro bono partnerships. We know from experience that there are plenty of charities and organisations out there that have some technical challenges to solve, but might not have the budget to hire someone on a commercial basis. So when our own team ...

Improving Our Carbon Footprint

As the climate emergency continues we wanted to understand where HappyPorch could make improvements to decrease our company overall carbon footprint. But in order to do that we first have to find out what our current carbon footprint actually is. Inspired by the amazing Wholegrain Digital carbon footprint post, this year we started with a project to measure our carbon footprint ...

A Proper Boss Meetup

Back in October it was time again for our second team meetup this year. This time the HappyPorch team came together in Liverpool to spend a week together. Since Mark, one of our team members, is a native Liverpudlian, he was able to prepare us well before the trip itself, even throwing in some helpful videos to help us understand the local dialect (you might see where this post ...

One Page Impact Reports

Last month, we made the decision to close one of our pro bono services, One Page Impact Reports. The idea for the tool came about in 2015 when we partnered with Intentionality, to build an online tool enabling users to create One Page Impact Reports. Intentionality were a small company which provided various services to charities and social enterprises including advice on One P ...

Engagement & Satisfaction at HappyPorch

That “HappyPorch exists for us” is one of our values we tend to follow and live. The happiness and satisfaction of the Team and our engagement is very important to us. To measure this we started a survey. This post is based on the results of our first Engagement and Satisfaction Survey. We received feedback responses from everyone from the Team. On a happiness scale from 1 to 5 ...

Celebrating our rebrand

After a year of planning and living the actions we finally transformed from Endzone.io Ltd to HappyPorch. This better reflects our current identity and where we want to go in the future. We changed the company name,logo and launched this new website. If interested where this new, happy name came from, here is an article about it.  We felt the need to share the beauty of change ...

July - it's that time of year - Plastic Free!

This is my third Plastic Free July. It might be the types of places where I shop but I noticed that this year, the idea of going plastic free for July seems more widespread (no hard data, just a feeling). More and more I see takeaway places and festivals using Vegware or other compostable packaging. I definitely felt less alone in my choices this year.  Being further along in m ...

Joining 1% for the Planet

Joining 1% for the Planet is, in my opinion, the most significant action we’ve taken in 2019 towards ‘walking the talk’.  The team talks that took place at our Porto Meetup confirmed that my idea to join the global donation scheme was the right one for the team, both individually and as a wider company. Personally, Barry and I have long been fans of Patagonia outdoor wear. 1 % ...

Ethical banking

Being ethical and sustainable is important to us at HappyPorch. It’s been at the forefront of most big and strategic decisions but we’re not playing closer attention to our supplier list. Improving the quality of our supplier list is an ongoing and challenging task. Banking has proven to be one of the most difficult.  When Barry first started HappyPorch in 2014 (then trading as ...
