Sayonara Crude Oil! There’s a re-NEW-able Feedstock in the House.

From running shoes to clothes, and even in our deodorants, petroleum is used as a feedstock. But petroleum is also a non-renewable resource. BLOOM addresses a problem that has baffled the shoe industry for over 30 years with the world’s only plant-based flexible foam to help offset the pervasive use of petroleum.

At BLOOM, we’re passionate about innovation, the environment, and performance.

We’re actively proving that environmental responsibility is not an inconvenient trade-off for companies looking to do the right thing—nor does it come at great cost. Driven by strategy, ingenuity, and a healthy disrespect for the status quo, we’re helping companies take steps to lessen industries’ collective environmental footprint while engineering performance-driven goods at competitive price-points.

For us, that’s the totality of sustainability—ensuring an economically viable solution by utilizing a renewable feedstock that mitigates environmental disruption. This means that all industries have opportunities to make a positive change, no excuses.
