    The Bloom device is meant to be a subversive and inspirational tool for our concrete jungles. Similar to the tuft of a dandelion as the wind carries the seedling, Bloom proposes a way of dispersing seedlings with bubbles and bicycling. Seeds are co-mingled with a bubble mixture and upon pedaling to your destination , you release the floating seeds which land in cracks and crevices throughout the city streets. Over time, the seeds grow into flowers and plants to create a green "fringe" to our sidewalks and streets. Using natural ingredients; vegetable based soap and seeds, combine together to make a dissolving "nugget". The resulting mixture resides in a reservoir inside Blooms aluminum housing. The housing is attached to the lower frame near the rear tire, similar to a exhaust pipe. Upon pedalling, air enters the front of Bloom and spins a pinwheel inside which picks up a small drop of the seed/bubble mixture and blows a bubble carrying a seed out the back as "exhaust". Inspiration comes from the tale of Johnny Appleseed, where he would spread seeds everywhere he went planting apple trees for future generations.

    I have to spread the word about this great little gadget. When this bubble blower is placed on the back of your bike not only are you spreading love through bubbles, but you are actually spreading a garden of delight. Within the bubble mixture there are little tiny seeds that end up growing in the least expected places, Like the cracks in the cement! You must check it out!

    To be honest, I couldn't find any viable link that would show me where you could buy this beautiful thing, so I'm wondering if they haven't managed to get it into production. But what glorious idea - and if anyone finds where to buy it, please contact me and let me know! Here's the blurb from the originating website so you can see how wonderful an idea this is...

    Bubbles are a rare delicate thing in the desert, which makes it all the more fun to spread the joy... Best done at dusk when the wind dies down, avoid dust storms at all costs.
