Paper4trees was first introduced to the Waikato Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 403 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 93% of all Waikato schools and 20% of all Waikato preschools.
Between 2007 and 2020, Waikato schools and preschools have:
Diverted 7,884 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,949 elephants!
Saved 63,073 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 42,574 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Waikato schools and preschools with a total of...
29,799 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
