Paper4trees was first introduced to the Taranaki Region in 2008.
Since then, a total of 103 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 97% of all Taranaki schools and 10% of all Taranaki preschools.
Between 2008 and 2014, Taranaki schools and preschools have:
Diverted 1,487 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 248 elephants!
Saved 11,891 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 8,026 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Taranaki schools and preschools with a total of...
5,941 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
