Paper4trees was first introduced to the Canterbury Region in 2010.
Since then, a total of 338 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 91% of all Canterbury schools and 40.98% of all Canterbury preschools.
Between 2010 and 2020, Canterbury schools and preschools have:
Diverted 7,379 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,844 elephants!
Saved 59,147 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 39,810 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Canterbury schools and preschools with a total of...
29,741 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
