Paper4trees was first introduced to the Bay of Plenty Region in 2001.
Since then, a total of 334 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 92% of all BOP schools and 52% of all BOP preschools.
Between 2001 and 2015, Bay of Plenty schools and preschools have:
- Diverted 6,753 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,126 elephants!
- Saved 54,020 cubic metres of landfill space
- Prevented 36,464 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded BOP schools and preschools with a total of...
27,104 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
