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 2020, Marlborough schools and preschools have:
Diverted 426 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 106 elephants!
Saved 3,415 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 2,305 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...
1,850 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
