The much anticipated Car Free Day returns to Vancouver on Main St this June 17th! Car Free Day is an annual free event where people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a bus, bicycle, or walk. Spanning 21 blocks, from East Broadway to 33rd Ave, the Main St. event is the largest of the Car Free Day festivals in Vancouver. Look forward to 15 music stages, activities for kids, dozens of artist's booths, food trucks, and so much more!

Bird on a Wire Creations Joins the Car Free Day Main St. Fun

For the 8th year in a row, Bird on a Wire Creations is proud and excited to be a part of the Main St. Car Free Day festivities! Right on our doorstep, we will be hosting an Environmentally Conscious themed booth featuring three of our wonderful environmentally-friendly artisans.

Glass Sipper

New to Bird on a Wire this Spring, the Glass Sipper has already made a big splash with our customers! A local family enterprise in Kitsilano, these straws have joined our eco-friendly booth just in time for the plastic straw ban. Vancouverites are loving these reusable glass straws, with unique glass plants and animal designs. Made from borosilicate, these straws are almost indestructible - and they come with a lifetime guarantee if they break! Come by our booth on June 17th and pick up your new favourite straw friend.


The pioneers in reusable wax food wraps, this Victoria-based brand is a zero waste, all natural alternative to plastic wrap. Abeego has been with us for 5 years and we love seeing the word spread as more and more shoppers turn to reusable products. Discover the magic of beeswax wraps at our booth!


Our favourite in the reusable snack bag game - gogoBags is a local line of food-safe, waterproof, and breathable food bags. Keep your apple slices fresh in a snack bag all day, use a mesh bag for your leafy produce, and steep your tea in their reusable mesh teabags! We will also be showcasing their newest product - glass straw bags so you can protect your Glass Sipper straw wherever you go! Read more about gogoBags and their journey in our studio tour blog post! On June 17th from 12-7pm, come by our booth and say hello. We can't wait to see you all there! Share your favourite eco-friendly tips with us on Facebook!
