It all began with a single Bamboo Straw..

We discovered these beautiful bamboo straws while traveling through Bali with our children, the whole family fell in love with them. 

As world travelers we saw firsthand the damage inflicted onto nature by single-use plastics. 

We decided to offer the world a natural alternative through Worthy Picks by creating and curating the best alternatives to single use plastics, in order to
help people create a sustainable lifestyle.

Buluh Bamboo Straws

Our bamboo straws originate in nature and are biodegradable, sustainable, and organically grown. 
Buluh Straws are strong, durable and 100% natural, containing NO inks or dyes and naturally antimicrobial. 

Each 8 inch straw derives from a single stem of bamboo, unique in its own variance of color, thickness, and texture.


How do we do this? 

Our growers consist of small family owned Balinese artisans who make each straw by hand.

Each stem of bamboo reaches maturity in less than 5 months which is then cut, dried, cut to straw size, cleaned, polished, boiled then dried
again before being ready for shipment. 

Once we receive the straws in California, we inspect each and every one for quality before packing and shipping. 

We have been working with the same growers since we discovered these Bamboo Straws and we have formed a beautiful relationship.
We travel to Indonesia every other year to make sure that our growers have what they need, and are happy with our fair trade agreement.

We have learned so much about the process of growing and making our beautiful Buluh Straws from our growers and we have inspired
them to use less plastic in their daily lives and their shipments to us. 

We are so grateful for their hard work and craftsmanship!
