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.

Annual stats coming soon
