Paper4trees was first introduced to the Manawatu-Wanganui Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 249 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 96% of all Manawatu-Wanganui schools and 23% of all Manawatu-Wanganui preschools.
Between 2007 and 2014, Manawatu-Wanganui schools and preschools have:
Diverted 4,073 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 679 elephants!
Saved 32,580 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 21,992 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Manawatu-Wanganui schools and preschools with a total of...
16,415 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
