Paper4trees was first introduced to the Wellington Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 499 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 94% of all Wellington schools and 50% of all Wellington preschools.
Between 2007 and 2020, Wellington schools and preschools have:
Diverted 6,198 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,327 elephants!
Saved 49,584 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 33,019 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded Wellington schools and preschools with a total of...
25,224 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
