Paper4trees was first introduced to the Manawatu Whanganui Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 274 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 91% of all Manawatu Whanganui schools and 40% of all Manawatu Whanganui preschools.
Between 2007 and 2020, Manawatu Whanganui schools and preschools have:
Diverted 6,579 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,315 elephants!
Saved 52,636 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 35,529 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Manawatu Whanganui schools and preschools with a total of...
28,120 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
