Seal the Cracks Campaign BadgeWe have good news to share – we have surpassed our goals for the Seal the Cracks campaign! Thanks to the inspiring leadership of 93 local businesses, nonprofits, campus groups, and residents, we have raised $12,214 and offset 611 tons of greenhouse gas as of Election Day.   In addition to these contributions, we were also supported by over $2,000 of donated services and goods from a dozen area businesses and nonprofits. Thanks to all the media support and our events, hundreds of county residents have learned about our local carbon offset program and all the good it does in our community.

Thank you all!!

We’ve already notified area contractors that we have grants available from the Finger Lakes Climate Fund. And our little campaign team has met to identify next steps to keep building support and movement toward our goal of having carbon offsetting as much a part of our local lifestyle as recycling.

Special thanks to Ellen Harrison for chairing our campaign committee and to Anna Odell for being our exceptionally able project assistant. We’re so grateful for your energy, leadership, and dedication!
