Paper4trees was first introduced to the Hawkes Bay Region in 2007.
Since then, we have signed up a total of 160 schools and preschools!
That is the equivalent to 78% of all Hawkes Bay schools and 31% of all Hawkes Bay preschools.
Between 2007 and 2019, Hawkes Bay schools and preschools have:
Diverted 4,489 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 959 elephants!
Saved 35,914 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 24,142 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Hawkes Bay schools and preschools with a total of...
16,906 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
