ROBUST, LIGHT, NATURAL, SOBER & RECYCLABLE
These 5 words sum up our product development philosophy, which is broken down into different eco-design axes:
- The unique use of recycled and natural materials.
- The design of manufacturing processes that are more sober in CO2.
- The extension of the lifespan and reuse.
Recycled or natural materials now make up between 60 and 80% of our products and we want to reach 100% by 2025, by increasing the proportion of natural materials because thermoplastic recycling remains energy-intensive. We always favor flexible and light materials, breathable for the summer and waterproof for the winter.
RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
Each pair contains between 3 and 7 bottles on the top (the stem).
The supplier with whom we collaborate is accredited by the " Recycled Global Standard" certification which ensures the traceability of the production chain.
SEAWEED AT YOUR FEET!
The Bloom Foam team cleans overgrown lakes of these harmful algae caused by human activity. They are then dried, crushed and transformed into powder. This powder is then mixed with EVA in order to be used for soles.
SAOLA soles incorporate 20% algae and contribute
to clean about 42 liters of water per pair.
A good solution on all floors!
LACES IN CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON ©
Cotton cultivation represents 2.4% of the agricultural area but requires almost ¼ of the pesticides sold in the world.
That's why all our shoes include organic cotton. Pesticides and chemical fertilizers are replaced by natural compost, and this cotton requires half the water than traditional cotton.
Softer, more flexible, and also thicker, your hands will be more than happy when you tie your shoes, and the planet too!
THE COMFORT OF CORK
This is what we chose for the inside of your soles!
The advantage of cork is that if you want to wear your shoes barefoot, cork will be very comfortable. You will feel like you are walking on a cloud.
The bark is harvested without impacting the trees which continue to grow. They thus generate a new bark which will be taken again a few years later.
