Be EPIC, Volunteer!

Who will attend?

EPIC is a consumer show open to the general public. There will be plenty of shopping opportunities, and lots of information and education on sustainable living. Children of all ages are welcome. Sorry, no pets.


Who will present on EPIC’s Main Stage?

Do you ever wonder who picked the banana you ate for breakfast? Or who sewed the seams on the soccer ball you kicked around over the weekend?
Whether it’s fruit, coffee, spices, sugar, or sports products – it’s important to make the most ethical and sustainable purchasing choices, which is why EPIC: The Vancouver Sun Sustainable Living Expo is introducing the EPIC Fair Trade Pavilion. At the EPIC Fair Trade Pavilion consumers can interact with local companies that provide
access to overseas products that carry a Fair Trade label, certifying that their manufacturing process meets certain social, economic and environmental standards.
“Two billion people in the world survive on less than two dollars a day,” says Jeff Geipel, Executive Director of Fair Trade Vancouver. “Fair Trade is a way to change the terms of trade for the products we buy so that the farmers and artisans behind those products get a better deal
and can live a healthy, happy life. We’re really proud to be able to help EPIC introduce the event’s first Fair Trade Pavilion where consumers can come and gather the information they need to make the most responsible shopping choices.”
