Business is Blooming

Eva Bleakley was already a supporter of our Climate Fund, having offset the carbon emissions from the delivery van for Business is Blooming, her sustainable florist shop. So, when she had a chance to buy the business and the adjacent historic house in downtown Ithaca, she was motivated to do the right thing and get going on making the house a lot more climate-friendly. She got in touch with Halco who recommended she start with thorough sealing and insulation of the drafty basement ceiling and installation of a highly efficient air-source heat pump water heater. We were glad to give this young businesswoman a boost with our 23rd award of $1,667.
