Home > Corporate Responsibility
At Utility we strive to support the short and long term stability of both local and international communities, as well as the wildlife and environment within it by supporting a carefully selected number of charities and organisations:
North West Cancer Research Fund: Utility aims to support charities within our community who strive to make the world a better place. For this reason we are proud to be sponsors of North West Cancer Research Fund (N.W.C.R.F), an independent, North West based charity. Their key focus is to research the causes and potential cures of cancer through grant funding into medical research. With members of our Utility team on the charity's Liverpool City Committee, we actively support the aims of N.W.C.R.F. Our annual Utility Ladies Night invites those within the local community to help generate a proportion of store profits to be given directly to their cause. Our team look to embrace the charity as much as possible - be it in our shop window, in store collection boxes, or by attending the annual N.W.C.R.F Butterfly Ball and helping raise money to tackle a disease that affects around 1 in 3 people directly.
Saving the Environment: At Utility we aim to reduce our carbon footprint by using recyclable material in our packaging where possible, as we play our part in trying to make the world a greener and cleaner place. Wherever possible all our web orders are dispatched using packaging material sent to us by our suppliers. This reduces the materials we have to purchase (saving both manufacturing and transport resources) and the amount we dispose of.
Refuse Our contract with our refuse company facilitates the recycling of the rubbish we dispose of. This enables picking and sorting all our refuse so all recyclable elements can be redeployed.
Bold Street Festival: Utility also take part in the annual Bold Street Festival, helping promote the heritage and growth of Liverpool's alternative shopping district (and our spiritual home), making it a safer, more exciting and diverse place to be.
