Nelson Tasman

Paper4trees was first introduced to the Nelson Tasman Region in 2008.

Since then, a total of 
57 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to
85% of all Nelson Tasman schools and 10% of all Nelson Tasman preschools.
 

Between 2007 and 2020, Nelson and Tasman schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 1,404 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 351 elephants!

  • Saved 11,235 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 7,583 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill


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

4,866 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
