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 7,483 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 1,844 elephants!

  • Saved 59,895 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 40,369 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...

29,984 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
