Superhabits are the everyday actions we all take to reduce single-use items like bags, containers, cups, utensils, and straws. These small, daily routines have a big impact — and we want to celebrate them!


Share your Superhabit for a chance to win a prize!

Share your Superhabit on social media for a chance to win one of eight prize packages! Each prize pack includes:

  • A tour of the Coquitlam Watershed for two people
  • One high quality reusable travel mug
  • Two reusable mesh produce bags
  • A gift card for $25 to a local business of your choice (the business must be located in the Metro Vancouver region, offer reusable alternatives, and sell gift cards/certificates)

The more you post, the more chances you’ll have to win! Winners will be selected once per week during the contest period, and each social media post counts as an additional entry.

Get inspired! Check out Superhabits from other Metro Vancouverites. #WhatsYourSuperhabit
