In honour of the festive season, Metro Vancouver just launched our 10th annual holiday waste reduction campaign. Continuing the tradition of our widely recognized tagline ‘Create Memories, Not Garbage,’ this year features all-new fun and festive creative in holiday colours that pop.</p><p>The creative is not the only new part of this year’s campaign. Focus group feedback told us that Metro Vancouver residents want practical tips and ideas to help them minimize waste over the holidays. The dedicated campaign website houses dozens of sustainable décor tips, printable gift cards and long-lasting gift ideas. Metro Vancouver residents need look no further than <a href="http://www.creatememoriesnotgarbage.ca/" target="_blank"> www.creatememoriesnotgarbage.ca</a> for ways to celebrate this Christmas with less waste.</p><p>The website also acts as a central hub connecting all the campaign creatives, including the campaign advertising on bus shelters and in transit facilities, on social media, online and on TV and all are available to be shared with all members and beyond. This years’ creative focuses on the answer to the question ‘What’s your best gift ever?’ Whether it was the gift of rollerblade lessons at a local community centre, sharing favourite recipes in a homemade recipe book, decorating the Christmas tree with family or a favourite uncle teaching you to ride his old bike- the answer to that question sparks a treasured memory for many. And featured in the campaign, sharing some of those treasured memories, are Metro Vancouver employees who generously shared some of their special moments. </p><p>Looking for creative ideas for those on your gift list?
