Holiday Helpers

Green Angel

What do bungee jumping, opera tickets and snowboard lessons have in common? They are all great gift ideas in Metro Vancouver's Annual Holiday Waste Reduction Campaign.

Every year residents are encouraged to 'create memories', not garbage during the holidays. Send a free e-card, watch videos on memorable stories and unique gift ideas and learn more about the garbage issue. You can also share your unique and interesting gift ideas. For more information on how you can be a Green Angel, please visit Metro Vancouver's website.
