Ariat is partnering with Bloom™ to use reclaimed algae in the soles of our Eco Ryders & Eco Cruiser shoes. Turning green water to clean water. Algae is the fastest growing plant on Earth, and the rise in global temperatures, excess nutrient runoff, and human activities have contributed to an uncontrollable rise in algae growth in ecosystems around the world—harming plant, animal, and even human life. Bloom converts excess algae biomass into lightweight, durable foam, replacing the plastic materials typically used in conventional soles. Eco Ryders & Eco Cruisers deliver the style and comfort you love, in a more sustainable package.
Less water makes a world of difference. H2Lo denim styles utilize an innovative wash process that uses 50% less water than the typical process. Over the next few years, we’ll keep expanding this initiative to reduce water and energy consumption during our manufacturing process.
