“City proposing bold actions to reduce single-use items including ban on foam cups and containers.”
Like to look great? You are welcome to join us for an upcoming clothing swap offered tomorrow/Sunday, March 18th!
Unload clothing that no longer fits, pick up a few items that make the family look slick. All leftovers donated to charity, keep stuff out of landfills, and connect with your community while doing it all.

"Zero Waste 2040
Our vision is for Vancouver to be a zero waste community by 2040.
To reduce and ultimately stop disposing of solid waste in landfills or incinerators, as a city we will:
Prevent waste of all types, including wasted food at all points between farm and table
Compost inedible food or convert it into fuel
Repair and maintain products and materials to extend their lives
Share, reuse, and refurbish products and materials before recycling them"
The 3rd annual Blessed Coast Music, Yoga & Arts Festival will be held from July 28 to July 31st on unceded Coast Salish Territory, in Squamish, BC – just 50 minutes from downtown Vancouver!

To view this year’s exciting roster of Artists, please visit our Artists page: 2017 Artists
Blessed Coast also hosts BC’s favourite Yoga Teachers, Speakers and Wisdom Keepers in our Yoga Shala and Workshop spaces. These classes and workshops will take place in breathtaking surroundings, with 360° views of snow-capped mountains. Our festival is both family and eco-friendly. This year’s event is 100% powered by renewable energy, and features solar-powered sound stages! Cheekye Ranch is an amazing 88-acre property in the heart of the Squamish Valley, and offers Riverside and Meadow Camping.
Working with lineage-holding Coast Salish elders to bring the ancient ways of communal ceremony into the modern context of celebration is an important part of what we do and how we differ from other festivals. In our work with these elders, each of our staff and guests is acting on behalf of their own ancestry in this co-creation of culture.
