Paper4trees was first introduced to the Nelson-Tasman Region in 2008.

Since then, a total of 57 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!

That is the equivalent to 85% of all Nelson-Tasman schools and 10% of all Nelson-Tasman preschools.


Between 2008 and 2014, Nelson-Tasman schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 854 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 142 elephants!

  • Saved 6,834 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 4,613 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

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

3,451 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.

Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
