As a company, we are conscious of our impact and are always looking for ways to do our bit for the environment. That is why we have decided to support the not-for-profit initiative, JUST ONE Tree.
What is our goal?
We want to reduce our carbon footprint and offset the amount of paper we use by planting trees.
What are we doing?
We have partnered with JUST ONE Tree who will plant at least 1 tree for every £1 donated. Our staff are donating a portion of their salary each month, and we promise to plant 10 trees for every new client that signs with us.
Why is it important?
There is currently more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere than at any time in human history. This, along with widespread deforestation, is a major contributor to global warming. The best “technology” we have right now to combat this is planting trees. Trees are carbon sinks, removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, cleaning the air, filtering the water, stabilising the soil, providing food and homes for wildlife and forming the complex ecosystems our very survival depends upon.
It is important that we all do our bit to combat climate change to protect and preserve our beautiful planet for future generations.
Why JUST ONE Tree?
They are a non-profit organisation which focuses on global reforestation. Not only do they plant trees on land, but they also tackle issues in the ocean by planting mangroves and focusing on kelp regeneration projects. In addition, they bring environmental education to schools, which is in line with our family values as a company.
It also gives us peace of mind to know that they have very tight running costs so they can use as much of the donation as they can on planting as many trees as they can.
They have now planted over 1 million trees, provided 13,700 work days in local communities, restored 508 acres of land and expanded their support to reforestation projects in 9 countries over 4 continents!
Through this, they have increased biodiversity both on land and in the oceans, improved lives in the communities where they plant and raised environmental awareness in the classroom.

JUST ONE Tree Day – 15th October 2021
We are encouraging local schools to take part in JUST ONE Tree Day, where kids can bring in a donation to go towards the planting of their tree and environmental education will be promoted.
“The JUST ONE Tree Day creates a springboard for environmental education, reduces climate anxiety through positive action and helps compensate for your school’s environmental impact. Join children, parents and teachers in demonstrating the positive impact just one individual can have on the environment.”
