Paper4trees was first introduced to the West Coast Region in 2008.
Since then, a total of 38 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to 100% of all West Coast schools and 4% of all West Coast preschools.
Between 2008 and 2018, West Coast schools and preschools have:
Diverted 472 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
- That's around the same as 101 elephants!
Saved 3,779 cubic metres of landfill space
Prevented 2,551 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being created in landfill
Isn't this an amazing effort? We think so, which is why we have rewarded West Coast schools and preschools with a total of...
2,208 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
