Otago Region

Paper4trees was first introduced to the Otago Region in 2009.

Since then, we have signed up a total of 
239 schools and preschools!
That is the equivalent to
 85% of all Otago schools and 55% of all Otago preschools.

Between 2009 and 2020, Otago schools and preschools have:


  • Diverted 2,946 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 736.5 elephants!

  • Saved 23,569 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 15,911 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill

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

11,708 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
