Saving the world can be a thankless task. There are everyday superheroes saving our region from garbage by reducing single-use items. They’re carrying groceries in reusable bags, saying no to single-use utensils, helping others reduce single-use, and more. And even the smallest of these Superhabits is worth celebrating!
Give the everyday superheroes in your life a little boost by celebrating the everyday actions they take to reduce single-use items. Our small daily routines will save the day.

If you see an everyday Superhabit in action, give that superhero a compliment. Shoot them a thumbs up, do a virtual cheers with your reusable mugs, or exchange a knowing glance as you sip your drink without a straw.
And don’t forget to thank local businesses for making it possible to reduce single-use items! If your coffee shop offers contactless pour, or your favourite takeout joint always asks if you need disposable utensils before putting them in your order, let them know that you appreciate the work they do. Give them a shout out on social media or tell them in person.
Metro Vancouver acknowledges that the region’s residents live, work, and learn on the shared territories of many Indigenous peoples, including 10 local First Nations: Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Matsqui, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Semiahmoo, Squamish, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh.
Metro Vancouver respects the diverse and distinct histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, which collectively enrich our lives and the region.
