Change your brand’s footprint.

Our goal is to enable footwear brands to reduce your environmental footprint, while continuing to innovate and provide performance-driven goods at competitive price points.

Every day we’re working with nature to find creative solutions that preserve our planet’s most precious resources, without compromising on performance and quality.

PROVING OUR IMPACT

The scientists at Bloom have worked to quantify the specific positive impacts our materials make on freshwater ecosystems and the air we breathe. When brands incorporate Bloom materials into their shoes, they are able to know exactly how each pair is working for good.

We translate these impacts using visuals such as cubic meters of air cleaned of CO2, and liters of water cleaned of harmful nutrients.

In order to ensure these numbers are accurate and trustworthy, we have created the Bloom Certification system to track our impacts from our factory to your customer’s feet.

MEASURE YOUR IMPACT.

Through Bloom’s Eco-Facts certification process, you and your customer can know the direct impact your product has made on the environment.

The Eco-Facts presented above represent an estimate based on a product weighing 200 grams.

Lifecycle Assessment Overview

In keeping with our transparency in supply chain initiatives, BLOOM commissioned a complete, peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to help brands and consumers grasp the impact of using algae from cleaning water. An LCA is a data-based approach to measuring environmental impacts in five impact categories.

The algae-based thermoplastic manufacturing process was methodically analyzed at every step from algae harvesting to plastic production so that it could be compared to traditional EVA. This graph taken from our LCA shows that Rise by Bloom has 20-41% fewer impacts in all impact categories compared to EVA.

MAKE A MATERIAL CHANGE

Although Bloom is famous for its high-performance algae-based foam, this is only the first of many products we’re preparing to offer our brand partners. Bloom’s goal is to implement a sustainable alternative for every component of modern footwear, enabling you to Tread Well.

Learn more about our innovative eco-products below and make a material change today.

Formerly known as Bloom Foam, Rise is your environmentally-conscious, high-performance replacement for traditional petroleum-based EVAs.

Meet Stride – Bloom’s latest material innovation, providing the performance you expect from traditional TPR materials, now with positive environmental impacts.
