The Waste Watchers team work closely to support the Paper4trees programme with our project partner and award winning trust EERST. As a not-for-profit organisation with a community based focus, EERST has been recognized as a leader in school waste minimization programmes. EERST has assisted more than 65% of New Zealand schools with resource recovery initiatives. Each year the trust donates thousands of native trees to schools as an incentive to recycle paper and cardboard. The "Paper4trees" programme, which began in 2001, is responsible for recovering thousands of tonnes of paper and cardboard from schools each year. Participating schools have slashed thousands of dollars from their disposal fees and no longer dump or incinerate these resources. For more information go to www.eerst.co.nz
We see children as our future leaders and we believe education for sustainability must to be a priority for all students in Aotearoa New Zealand. Education for sustainability was first highlighted as a priority by the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment (PCE) in 1997. We support this view and actively promote education in schools and businesses today for a planet worth living on tomorrow.
