LONO is now authenticated under their “where to buy” list, sharing the fame with global brands such as Camper, Allbirds, and TOMS.
LONO is designed to be machine washable. The witty invention of SOLESOCK allows the insoles to stay clean and fresh while using the same pair of perfectly fine insoles.
LONO is here to promote the amazing properties of natural materials by translating them into shoes with remarkable functionalities.
We’ve incorporated eucalyptus trees, bombax ceiba, castorbean oil, and algae into the shoe. We are not 100% plastic free, but we are working towards that goal.
LONO doesn’t like to be boxed. Boxless packing minimizes carton size thus increases carbon efficiency in transportation.
Since LONO is machine washable, we might as well pack them in a sneaker washing pouch, right?
Waste is a major problem in manufacturing. We try our best in minimizing waste in the making of LONO by a single layer knitted upper with minimal excess trimmings.
Less is more
We believe that when you feel the difference, you make the changes. The option of going sockless allows you to experience how breathable, comfortable, and unstinkable LONOs are.
When you ditch those socks, you might also be ditching other bad habits and starting to adopt a more eco-conscious lifestyle.
TENCEL™ fibers help to maintain the environmental balance by being integrated into nature´s cycle.The fibers are certified as compostable and biodegradable, and thus can fully revert back to nature.
Certification firm TÜV Austria found that TENCEL™ biodegrades the fastest in fresh water (42 days). In soil, biodegradation takes 55 days, while salt water breaks down the fibers in 63 days.
TENCEL™ Lyocell textile fibers derive from eco-sustainable wood, collected in controlled and certified places using a closed cycle production process.
TENCEL™ Lyocell textile fibers are known for their eco-responsible closed cycle production process, which transforms the wood pulp into cellulose fibers with high efficiency compared to the use of resources and minimal environmental impact. This solvent spinning process recycles the processed water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate greater than 99%.
IF ONLY 5% OF SHOE MANUFACTURERS USED BLOOM PRODUCTS IN THEIR SHOES:
Enough water would be cleaned to provide for the basic needs of Africa and Asia’s population for 1 day.
The annual carbon emissions of approximately 23,000 passenger vehicles could be offset.
Based off their third-party, peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment, Bloom are able to quantify how much water is cleaned and how much CO2 is sequestered on a per-product basis!
