Paper4trees was first introduced to the Waikato Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 343 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 93% of all Waikato schools and 15% of all Waikato preschools.
Between 2007 and 2015, Waikato schools and preschools have:
- Diverted 4,932 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 822 elephants!
- Saved 39,452 cubic metres of landfill space
- Prevented 26,629 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Waikato schools and preschools with a total of...
19,756 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
