Putting our skills to good (environmental) use
It’s rare to think that web design and an environmental organization could form such a powerful duo, but in our case, that’s exactly what has happened. Our Pro bono work is gaining speed, this time with our newest client, Columbia Riverkeeper. This non profit organization works tirelessly to protect and restore the water quality of the Columbia River and all life connected to it, from the headwaters to the Pacific Ocean.
“We are the voice of the river, and our web site is the face to the public. Thanks to Elliott Design, our web site is now a user friendly, navigable, interactive destination for our members and the public to learn more about our important work for the Columbia,” Kelly Nokes, Program Administrator for Columbia Riverkeeper said.
“Elliott Design’s generous donation of time and talents has allowed us to spend our funding where it’s needed most – protecting the Great River of the West.”
The Columbia River is one of the most important rivers in the world. At over 1,200 miles in length, it is the lifeblood of the Pacific Northwest. The Columbia River supported and sustained rich Native American cultures and traditions, as well as one of the greatest salmon and steelhead runs on earth. Unfortunately, damns, poor water quality and habitat destruction have led to multiple species living in the Columbia River to be filed under the Endangered Species Act.
“Elliott Design is giving back to our community and helping Columbia Riverkeeper on our mission to keep our river clean,” Brett VandenHeuvel, Executive Director for Columbia Riverkeeper said. “They donated their skill and energy to build us a great new web site. We’re impressed that Elliott Design took the time to learn about our organization, really understand our needs and deliver a professional product.”
