Paper4trees was first introduced in the Otago Region in 2008.

Since then, a total of 237 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!

That is the equivalent to 88% of all Otago schools and 63% of all Otago preschools.


Between 2008 and 2014, Otago schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 1,597 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 266 elephants!
  • Saved 12,774 cubic metres of landfill space
  • Prevented 8,623 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

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

6,499 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.

Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
