Enjoy 15 days of waste diversion and $5 Vancity Member Rate every day at The Fair 2017

Vancity Member Perk at the PNE

Vancity and the PNE’s journey to environmental sustainability

Vancity has partnered with the Pacific National Exhibition for the past 10 years, and we’re thrilled to continue to support the PNE on its journey toward a zero waste future. With our joint goal of creating a greener, more sustainable Fair, last year Vancity and the PNE expanded its waste-busting efforts from one day—Vancity Member Day—to all 15 days of The Fair. Our combined efforts to make The Fair a Zero Waste Event diverted 618,920 pounds of waste from the landfill—about the equivalent of 70 African elephants.

What’s new this year?

This year, the PNE’s goal is to increase The Fair’s waste diversion to 60% of total waste, a 5% increase from last year. If we all pitch in, we believe we can get there. To build on the momentum from 2016, we’re continuing our support of daily waste diversion efforts and increasing the number of large Vancity diversion centres and recycling stations throughout the fairgrounds. Each station will have signage and educators to inspire guests to do their part and sort their waste. Fairgoers who use the diversion centres may also be in for a surprise…hint, hint, rewards might be involved.

With your help and commitment to STOP, THINK, and SORT during your time at The Fair, together we can make this year the greenest ever—and take the next step toward making The Fair a Zero Waste Event.
