 “I’m excited to bring a product to market that not only feels better than the pads I’ve used in the past,

but actually helps improve the quality of our water ways.”   – KS

 

In keeping with Kelly’s commitment to sustainability, Slater Designs collaborated with BLOOM Foam to develop the most eco-friendly traction pad on the market today.

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. We’re literally 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 our dependence on non-renewable oil.

Through this patented algae-technology, we 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.
