Paper4trees was first introduced to the Canterbury Region in 2008.
Since then, a total of 315 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 84% of all Canterbury schools and 17% of all Canterbury preschools.
Between 2008 and 2014, Canterbury schools and preschools have:
Diverted 4,829 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 805 elephants!
Saved 38,633 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 26,077 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Canterbury schools and preschools with a total of...
19,669 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
