“ We want to be part of the solution, not perpetuate the problem. We’re not 100% there by any means, but we’re committed to making realistic, beautiful faux botanicals that break free of the petrochemical cycle. ” - Alex Bates, co-founder
NOT ALL FAUX STEMS ARE CREATED THE SAME
We make two types of faux stems; one that’s injection-molded and made from bioplastics, and another that’s made of PET. For the bioplastics version, we aim to use above 50% recycled/upcycled material (the industry standard is 25%). For the PET version we replaced PVC tubing with less harmful PET tubing.
Bloomist is the first in the industry
