Paper4trees was first introduced to the Marlborough Region in 2009.

Since then, a total of 
28 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to
90% of all Marlborough schools and 3% of all Marlborough preschools.

Between 2009 and 2019, Marlborough schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 368 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 79 elephants!

  • Saved 2,949 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 1,990 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Marlborough schools and preschools with a total of...

1,665 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
