Paper4trees was first introduced to the Wellington Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 496 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 92% of all Wellington schools and 64% of all Wellington preschools.
Between 2007 and 2014, Wellington schools and preschools have:
Diverted 3,153 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 526 elephants!
Saved 25,225 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 17,027 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Wellington schools and preschools with a total of...
12,605 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
Stats for 2015 will be available late 2016.
