West Coast

Paper4trees was first introduced to the West Coast Region in 2008.

Since then, a total of
34 schools and preschools have joined Paper4trees!
That is the equivalent to
 97% of all West Coast schools and 2.5% of all West Coast preschools.

Between 2008 and 2020, West Coast schools and preschools have:

  • Diverted 504 tonnes of paper and cardboard from landfill
                 - That's around the same as 107 elephants!

  • Saved 4,033 cubic metres of landfill space

  • Prevented 2,722 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...

2,282 native trees! to plant in their school grounds or within their local community.
