This week’s Opportunity for Change is foam camping mats. Whether you use a mat for inflatable underlayment or you’re a purest and sleep directly on one, camping mats are a versatile piece of gear in your camping arsenal.

Beneficially, BLOOM is closed cell foam, so it won’t absorb moisture. Additionally, BLOOM has a great compression set so the foam won’t go flat on you after a night under the stars. Furthermore, BLOOM can be manufactured exceptionally lightweight to ensure that you’re not lugging around an extra two pounds of weight on your hike to basecamp.

Equally as important, BLOOM foam contains a large percentage of algae biomass content, and depending on the formulation, a large percentage of recycled content as well. This means that you can enjoy the great outdoors to its fullest, knowing that you are doing your part (to keep the great outdoors great) by selecting the right material for the job.‪ #‎opportunityforchange

    Hi Bloom people. I love your ethos and want to do the same sort of thing in Australia clearing waterways of reeds and bulrush. I want to use the bulrush in conjunction with your algae foam and Ecopoxy. My question is, how does the foam react to Ecopoxy. Has anyone done this?

      Hi Harvey! Thanks for your interest in our work. I think you may be referring to the kind of foam used in surfboards, which is a different kind than we’re currently manufacturing. As of today, we specialize in flexible foams like EVA, and are working on a viable solution to polyurethane foams. We wish you the best of luck with your venture! Anything we can do to help preserve our natural resources and mitigate our environmental footprint is a step in the right direction!
