About Vancity’s Lighter Living Challenge
Did you know that buying local means 33% of business revenues are recirculated into the local economy?
In alignment with Vancity’s core pillar of environmental sustainability, this year they are supporting the key theme of Lighter Living—a focus on providing greater access to sustainable products and the shared use of goods and services.
Vancity will be engaging with guests at various community events this summer with their Lighter Living Challenge which introduces three themes (wasted food, buying local, and plastic waste), and nine challenges where event guests can choose their own adventure and learn how to reduce their ecological footprint. At the end of the game, the farmers’ market voucher will be one of the prizing choices.
Their Lighter Living Challenge will be deployed at over 70 community events across the Vancity trade region this summer, from April 10 – October 31, 2020.The various community events include but not restricted to:
- Vancity Annual General Meeting
- Car Free Day (West End, Main Street, and Commercial Drive)
- Various Shred-a-thons
- National Indigenous Peoples Day
