An innovative footwear solution made with repurposed algae biomass, Rise by Bloom is engineered to replace a percentage of plastic polymer typically used for making conventional EVA shoes. Bloom’s process simultaneously sweeps our lakes and freshwater ecologies of overly abundant algae growth, transforming undesirable excess into an environmentally sound product. The same manufacturing process locks away CO2 and purifies 50 cubic meters (50m3) of air for a cleaner, healthier ecosystem.
Love the Jefferson Bloom! First time wearing the shoes out, a stranger at the gas station asked about them. I was thrilled to explain all the great sustainable and recyclable features about the shoes to her and she was stoked to go look up Native brand shoes for herself.
I bought a second pair of Jeffersons in white to custom paint myself. They turned out great!
