The Clean Water + Clean Air
Our clean water + clean air certification process empowers brands to Tread Well with confidence, knowing the materials in their shoes actively helped clean and maintain the environment.
PROVING OUR IMPACT
The scientists at Bloom have worked to quantify the specific positive impacts our materials make on freshwater ecosystems and the air we breathe. When brands incorporate Bloom materials into their shoes, they are able to know exactly how each pair is working for good.
We translate these impacts using visuals such as cubic meters of air cleaned of CO2, and liters of water cleaned of harmful nutrients.
In order to ensure these numbers are accurate and trustworthy, we have created the Bloom Certification system to track our impacts from our factory to your feet.
After signing our supplier agreement, a factory must then demonstrate to us that they are proficient in the manufacturing processes necessary to work with Bloom materials and to produce good quality products. Then, they agree to allow us to monitor our materials used in their factory. This helps us ensure our impact metrics are accurate and that our brand partners are getting the quality products they expect.
