Paper4trees was first introduced to the Wellington Region in 2007.
Since then, a total of 493 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 93% of all Wellington schools and 63% of all Wellington preschools.
Between 2007 and 2019, Wellington schools and preschools have:
Diverted 5,651 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 1,207 elephants!
Saved 45,211 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 30,067 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...
22,324 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
