Paper4trees was first introduced to the Canterbury Region in 2010.
Since then, a total of 335 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 81% of all Canterbury schools and 14% of all Canterbury preschools.
Between 2010 and 2018, Canterbury schools and preschools have:
Diverted 6,897 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,473 elephants!
Saved 55,207 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 37,204 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...
28,359 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
