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 2946 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 25,909 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.
