Goods Made in Vancouver
Vancouver doesn't just produce overpriced lattes and undersized condos. The city's creative denizens have designed a range of products from shoes to yoga wear.
Happy Planet Juices: Vancouverites have not only embraced this local company's mission to "turn the planet on to 100% organic juices," in 2008 they elected company cofounder Gregor Robertson the city's mayor.
Holey Soles: A competitor of the ubiquitous Crocs, these brightly colored, cloglike, rubber-compound shoes are made in the Vancouver area and sold at outdoor and garden shops around town.
John Fluevog: Yep, those outrageous shoes took their first step in Vancouver.
Lululemon Athletica: The stylized "A" insignia is as recognizable to yoga enthusiasts as the Nike "swoosh" is to sports fans.
Rocky Mountain Bicycles: B.C. invented the "free-riding" or "north shore" (from the North Shore Mountains) style of riding that's taken over the sport, and Rocky Mountain makes the steeds on which the style was pioneered.
