Hawkes Bay

Paper4trees was first introduced to the Hawkes Bay Region in 2007.

Since then, a total of 145 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!

That is the equivalent to 74% of all Hawkes Bay schools and 26% of all Hawkes Bay preschools.


Between 2007 and 2014, Hawkes Bay schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 2,915 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 486 elephants!

  • Saved 23,318 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 15,740 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Hawkes Bay schools and preschools with a total of...

11,631 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.

Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
