44 trees has been planted in 2 hours by all MAC students in the past month. Thank you to the diggers, bucket carriers, and tablet holders and all helpers. We earned these trees because we recycled 8 tons of paper in 2011 and 2012.
Thank you to Paper4Trees
Getting money from companies who want to reduce their carbon footprint, they buy native trees and offer them to school to reward them for their recycling efforts.
Since Paper4trees first started in 2001, kiwi kids have recycled over 25,000 tonnes of paper and cardboard and planted over 100,000 native trees! http://www.paper4trees.co.nz/
