Paper4trees was first introduced to the Gisborne Region in 2007.
Since then, we have signed up a total of 52 schools and preschools!
That is the equivalent to 90% of all Gisborne schools and 9% of all Gisborne preschools.
Between 2007 and 2020, Gisborne schools and preschools have:
Diverted 1,502 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 200 elephants!
Saved 12,013 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 8,109 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Gisborne schools and preschools with a total of...
5,942 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
