Bruce Heslop has lived in the pacific northwest all his life with much of that time spent in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island. Most recently he and his wife lived 1 yr in the Tofino/Ucluelet area where he spent time each day walking the beaches.
Complete peace and solitude for miles on end – completely transformational in how he lives his life. Relationships and experiences have become much more important than ‘things’ and consumption. Seeing so much waste from other people’s lives washing up on the shore each day was shocking and moving. Coming back to Vancouver, Bruce couldn’t justify going back to a cubicle job. – he wanted to make a difference and to prove that a business could be successful without contributing mindlessly to the plastics-problem.
BloomZoom Urban Flower Delivery was born from that difference-making attitude. The company exists because they see purpose in bringing joy to the community, and what better way to do that than through flowers. Bruce’s main goal is to change the way flowers are bought for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and any other special occasion. Through flowers, he wants to help you connect and express yourself to the important people in your life in a better way. …and he is very proud to say that they are single-use plastic free!
