Paper4trees was first introduced to the Southland Region in 2010.

Since then, a total of 142 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!

That is the equivalent to 93% of all Southland schools and 72% of all Southland preschools.


Between 2010 and 2014, Southland schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 540 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 90 elephants!
  • Saved 4,319 cubic metres of landfill space
  • Prevented 2,916 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

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

2,238 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.

Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
