“Best Sustainable Shopping” Visit Oakville's Talk of the Town Award category (July)

It’s Plastic Free July, so why not celebrate by tossing your hat in the running for our Best Sustainable Shopping Talk of the Town Award! Visit Oakville will open voting for the Best Sustainable Shopping Talk of the Town Award on July 5, 2021 asking the public to vote for the store they believe most caters to eco-friendly shoppers in Oakville. Voters can find the survey through Visit Oakville’s website and manually type in the name of any place they believe fits the bill. This survey will close at midnight on July 11, 2021 and the shop with the highest number of votes will be announced as the winner. The top store will be featured heavily in Visit Oakville’s print, digital and video content, as well as the Look Local Magazine website and YourTV Oakville/Burlington. The winner will also receive a window decal displaying their title as “2021 Talk of the Town Award Winner for Best Sustainable Shopping”. All of our past winners have actively promoted their bid in the Talk of the Town Awards on social media and seen new business come in as a result of their involvement in the awards. If you know that your business is a good fit for this award, follow the guidelines below! How to win a Talk of the Town Award:

  • Interact with patrons in person and let them know about the Talk of the Town Awards. It takes less than a minute to fill out the survey
