Edgemont Village Plastic Bag Free


Following the success of the Plastic Bag Free initiative, Edgemont Village is taking the next step in waste reduction by rolling out a new bag share program in April of 2020. The first location will be outside of Giftworks in Edgemont Village with more locations to come. Stay tuned for more information and the launch of this upcoming initiative. 

On March 1, 2020, Edgemont Village Businesses initiated a voluntary ban on single use plastic shopping and carrier bags.

This bold action was led by Ocean Ambassadors Canada, endorsed by the Edgemont Village Business Association (EVBA) and Edgemont & Upper Capilano Community Association and supported by Vancity.

A special thanks goes to the dozens of youth volunteers from local elementary and secondary schools, guide and scout groups, and environmental clubs who ran weekend pop-up Ocean Ambassadors Booths to  communicate this initiative to passers-by. And to those who helped bring the community together at the Launch Event. 

The Plastic Bag Free Launch Event on February 21, 2020, brought together Edgemont businesses, community groups, local residents, and key stakeholders to celebrate this initiative and participating businesses.

Thanks to the Edgemont Village community for making this first plastic reduction initiative possible!
