About Us


EERST runs environmental programmes and waste assessments for schools, councils and businesses.

We also speak directly with community groups and work with local councils to give practical, simple solutions to their waste problems. Aside from pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars directly into the community, the trust cuts environmental, financial and social costs associated with waste.


Paper4trees is a waste minimisation and tree planting programme for NZ schools and preschools. Schools are encouraged to recycle paper and cardboard, and then get free native trees for their efforts!
