Paper4trees was first introduced to the Taranaki Region in 2008.
Since then, we have signed up a total of 121 schools and preschools!
That is the equivalent to 98% of all Taranaki schools and 25% of all Taranaki preschools.
Between 2008 and 2023, Taranaki schools and preschools have:
Diverted 3,897 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 832 elephants!
Saved 31,177 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 31,044 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Taranaki schools and preschools with a total of...
15,033 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
