Purchasing Decisions
Are Powerful

While shopping look for products that are socially and economically responsible, such as:

  • Fair trade products

Make responsible purchasing decisions by looking for the green, red, and yellow signs in the Vancouver Aquarium Gift Shop that showcase B.C. and Canadian Made products, and/or products that contain Sustainable attributes.
