Bloom Algae Foam partially replaces fossil fuels with a bio material that's literally green: algae harvested from harmful blooms to restore balance to natural ecosystems.
The footwear industry is one of the biggest polluters on the planet, producing 700 million metric tons of greenhouse gases a year and accounting for 1.5% of global climate impact. Fossil fuel foam insoles and midsoles are responsible for large portions of that impact. Using Bloom Foam reduces the environmental impact of each foam component by 40%.
Algae grows in water, needing just sunlight, CO2 and nutrients to thrive. Human-induced changes to environments can lead to algae growing in rampant 'harmful blooms' that stifle and damage natural ecosystems. Bloom harvests harmful algae, dries it and turns it into a biomass that's perfect for creating eco-friendly, high performance foams for footwear.
