We Keep Trash Out of Landfills
At BLUMAKA, we keep trash out of landfills. We take the foam scraps left over from footwear manufacturers and use the foam to make high performance products. Not only does this divert trash, it prevents the need to create more foam because we recycle it into something new!
We were born to solve one of the world’s most challenging problems, keeping trash out of landfills. The United States Environmental Protection Agency reported 9 million tons of waste generated by the footwear and apparel industries in 2018.
In 2021, BLUMAKA diverted 40 tons of foam scraps generated by the footwear industry to our storing facility. With this foam scrap, our sincere and humble goal is to convert the 40 tons of foam into 400,000 high performance shoe insoles.
