Get involved in Zero Waste Vancouver

Waste can seem like an inevitable result of our grab-and-go lives. But it doesn’t have to be.

A zero waste future that prioritizes reducing and reusing is not only possible, it’s a critical part of solving today’s climate crisis, preserving resources, and eliminating waste.

Help shape the Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy

Businesses, industry experts, organizations, and other levels of government are invited to help develop a Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy.
