What's in Bloom this month?


A Banner Year for Bloom!

Despite all the challenges of 2020, Bloom had a record year for sales, and that translates to real impact in so many ways: savings for DC ratepayers, improved crop yields and soil conditions for our farmer customers, and much more. One metric we're especially proud of is the climate change-mitigating effect of Bloom, by capturing the methane in the thermal hydrolysis process for renewable energy and getting the carbon in Bloom back in local soils.

As the infographic to the left demonstrates, the 47,424 tons of Bloom sold in 2020 translated to 2,940 MT of carbon sequestered -- the equivalent of 639 cars taken off the road for the year, before even accounting for green energy generated!

MANTS Specials Extended! 

We missed seeing so many of our favorite faces (and flowers!) at MANTS this year, but enjoyed connected with a few new ones via the virtual Business Hub. If you didn't get a chance to stop by our virtual hub, Bloom is extending its specials through February to MANTS attendees. Reach out to learn details about the offer, or visit our booth here!

Hey Siri, How Much Bloom Do I Need?

We field many inquiries from potential Bloom customers wanting to know how much Bloom to use on their lawn, raised beds or other garden project. The answer is... "it depends"!

Application rates vary widely, depending on which product is being used, how it's being incorporated, what soil conditions are like and what you're growing. To help customers sort that out, we've developed a reference page, which includes a materials calculator you can use to estimate your Bloom needs (and then figure out if it will fit in the back of your pickup truck - see photo as a visual aid!) 

Even with the help of our online tool, it can be challenging to figure out what you need. Get in touch for a consultation with one of our Bloom team; we're here to help.
