West Vancouver recently received recognition from the United Nations as a Global Green City – something we do not find at all surprising here. When the Vancouver 2010 Olympic banner program was being finalized, West Vancouver decided opt out of the bulk order that VANOC was place and instead have their Olympic banners printed on Echotex (our 100% recycled banner textile), as part of their committment to sustainability. Naturally, this enthusiasm for the environment has bled over into other aspects of their municipality and now they have the official recognition to prove it. On April 8th in New York City, the United Nations awarded West Vancouver a Medal Certificate and recognition as a Global Green City.
So congratulations, West Van! Keep up the good work.
Here are their Olympic street banners printed on Echotex:
