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 2018, Nelson and Tasman schools and preschools have:
Diverted 1,191 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 199 elephants!
Saved 9,552 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 6,446 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...
4,737 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
