BLOOM is a joint venture between Effekt, LLC and Algix, LLC. If your reading this, then you likely already know that Effekt is an environmentally-minded materials development company based in San Diego, California. What you may not know is that Algix, based in Meridian, Mississippi, is the world’s leading producer of algae-based bioplastics. BLOOM was co-founded in July of 2015 after Rob Falken, of Effekt, and BLOOM’s Managing Director, developed the initial algae-based foams using Algix's bioplastic. His idea was to create an alternative solution to both industry's continued dependence on petrochemical ingredients, and to convert the algal blooms infesting the world’s waterways into useful, renewable feedstocks.
