The Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit organization: our earned revenues, such as those earned from our café, directly support our education, conservation and research initiatives. It has been one of our top priorities to reduce the waste generated by our food establishments, including plastic utensils, plates, non-biodegradable packaging, and leftover food. Seven years ago, the Aquarium started using fully compostable serving products, we also have public composting station for food waste. Vancouver Aquarium members also receive a 20 percent discount on every purchase.
