A free public tour of B.C.'s best green business: Eclipse Awards

DH Vancouver Staff Jun 05, 2014 8:55 am

It’s no surprise that Toby Barazzuol’s Eclipse Awards was named B.C.’s Best Green Business in 2014.  

From their office’s greenroom garden to their handcrafted awards using recycled glass and salvaged materials, the company operates in a 4000 sq.ft. “living warehouse” where over 10,000 clients have been served.


Whilst they’ve crafted many awards for celebrities like Bill Clinton, Eva Longoria and Ricky Martin, they also boast a client list with major organizations such as NASA, US Marine Corps and the United Nations.


Barazzuol started up the recognition company back in 1998 in Strathcona, where they still reside. He has taken on the role of the Chair of the Strathcona BIA in hopes to to help shift pubic perception for the benefit of local businesses. As a business owner himself, he has made strong commitments that led Eclipse Awards to be awarded the B.C.’s Best Employer in 2012, in addition to this year’s Best Green Business Award.


Here’s a segment CBC did on the Eclipse Awards’ unique office:
