OUR STORY

We are The Bamboo Wave.  Comprised of young entrepreneurs that just happened to love surfing and developed a deep appreciation of our beaches, oceans, all of its inhabitants and the environment as a whole.


It's all about business and life with a purpose and ours is to protect these wonders and help the environment by replacing the use of harmful plastics with more eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives. 


Our first, attainable, goal is to replace the use of harmful plastic drinking straws with much safer, more effective and sustainable bamboo ones.

We Do It For These Little Guys!

Plastic drinking straws and other plastic pollution is growing at an alarming rate. Our oceans and beaches are becoming more and more polluted and sea turtles and other sea and wild life are suffering. The production of plastic straws in the United States is contributing to a global epidemic that is killing off our already endangered sea turtles. Sea turtles can ingest the straws whole or broken up into smaller pieces and become lodged in their bodies.


So in addition to replacing plastic straws with much safer, more eco-friendly bamboo ones, the BambooWave is also committed to conserving protecting and restoring our oceans, beaches and sea-life as a whole,  in as many effective ways as possible. 


To this end, a certain amount of all BambooWave's sales proceeds go directly into sponsoring and forwarding worthy projects and programs such as Sea Turtle protection and enhancement, beach clean-up, marine education and appreciation programs and even supporting local aquariums and marine studies!


So when you switch from plastic to bamboo straws yourself and  "catch the bamboo wave" you are not only purchasing a more practicle, long lasting straw but helping us help the planet in other ways. so.....

Whats the Problem with Plastic Straws?


It’s estimated that nearly 500 million disposable plastic straws are tossed into landfills every year – that’s enough to fill 127 school buses with plastic straws every single day of the year. If you used one plastic straw per day for a decade, you would be throwing 3,650 separate pieces of plastic into a landfill.  


Most people don't think about the plastic straw and are shocked to learn that plastic straws are not recycled. They are used for minutes at best and tossed "away" in our environment, where they will outlive us all and generations to come.


It’s important to limit your use of plastic for a few reasons. First, it takes energy and resources to make any object, which means to make plastic, we must create pollution and sacrifice dwindling resources such as water and fossil fuels. Many items made out of thin plastic, such as straws and grocery bags, are meant to be used once. In most cases, it’s better for the environment to make and buy products that last a long time.


But the trouble doesn’t end there. Most plastics don’t decompose, or biodegrade, when we toss them. Plastics can stay in landfills for hundreds of years. And plastic in the ocean floats around as small pieces (called microplastics) that can poison sealife and hurt the environment.


Straws are only one part of a much bigger problem. Humans have created about 9.1 billion tons of plastic since inventing the material, and we don’t recycle most of it. Straws probably make up a small percentage of our trash worldwide but they’ve recently gotten a lot of attention because of how difficult they are to recycle.


The good news is that nature has provided us with the perfect solution without having to destroy our environment:
