BLOOM is a high-performance flexible foam made from algae biomass harvested from freshwater sources throughout the world.
The BLOOM Foam Process
Helps improve the quality of waterways by removing excess algae that harms plants, animals, and people who rely on the ecosystem for survival.
Recirculates fresh water back into the habitat.
Aids CO2 capture and sequestration.
BLOOM literally is scraping pond scum, solar drying, and pulverizing it before foaming the material to create a pad that helps re-balance the natural ecology, and reduces dependence on non-renewable oil.
Through this patented algae-technology, Firewire and BLOOM have created a product with increased durability, improved shock absorption and reduced weight over conventional foams.
The packaging is made with post-consumer backing, soy-based inks and a biodegradable wrapping.
By choosing this traction, you are helping make the world a cleaner place.
