Gilbert Stephens will plant a tree for each new matter opened through May

28th April 2022

We are showing our support for Earth Day, which fell on 22nd April, by planting a tree for every new matter opened throughout the month of May.  We are committed to preserving and protecting our environment, and this initiative is one way of doing that.

Managing Partner Terry Bastyan said “We are very pleased to be working alongside JUST ONE Tree with this initiative. They plant trees where they are needed most to support our planet, such as Madagascar, Kenya, Haiti, Mozambique, Nepal, Indonesia, Zambia and The Oceans which includes planting vital sea kelp”.

JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.

But they don’t stop there. JUST ONE Tree concentrates on restoring the entire ecosystem by planting on land and in the oceans, and they also focus on helping to shape the next generation of planet-conscious thinkers by bringing environmental education into the classrooms with lesson plans and JUST ONE Tree Day in October.

We chose to partner with JUST ONE  Tree as they are a phenomenal UK based team of like-minded individuals that have a passion for planting trees all over the world.

It costs just £1 to plant a tree, individuals, schools and businesses can all play their part in supporting the planet through the scheme.

So, if you instruct Gilbert Stephens to act on your behalf in May, not only will you be getting expert legal advice, but you’ll also be helping to make our world a better place.

Terry Bastyan added “We are aware that simply offsetting a carbon footprint by planting trees is not enough, and this initiative in recognition Earth Day is just part of what we are doing at Gilbert Stephens Solicitors. We have many other initiatives within the firm and plans to reduce our impact on the environment further”.

Gilbert Stephens Solicitors are committed to making a difference every day. If you need legal advice or assistance, please contact us today. We would be more than happy to help you. Thank you for supporting Gilbert Stephens Solicitors and our tree planting initiative.
