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 2018, Otago schools and preschools have:
Diverted 11,106 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 2,373 elephants!
Saved 36,275 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 24,486 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...
18,993 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
