"Water is life. Every little bit makes a difference. If we all do something, even if it's small, it contributes to the bigger picture. I believe we all need to become aware, take responsibility and play our part in protecting our ocean..." —Surfrider Ambassador, @rissmoore10

Our Story

bluTensils is owned by ocean lovers in Hawaii, an island that most of the world pictures with beautiful white sand beaches and an abundance of sea life. As someone living in Hawaii, surrounded by the ocean, we couldn’t help but notice that not only is there a decline in marine life, but that our “picture perfect beaches” are covered in microplastics, ropes, and marine debris. Our concern pushed us to act fast and begin to look for solutions that would promote a more eco-friendly movement. That is when we decided to change our habits and use products that are more sustainable. We created bluTensils because we see how single-use plastics are slowly consuming our island home and the oceans that surround us. These daily habits of using more sustainable products will help us protect our beautiful environment, as we strive to make a positive change in this world.

Our Mission

Our mission is to dramatically reduce dependency on plastics, particularly single use items. We fulfill this mission by producing high quality paper straws and utensils that are biodegradable and always eco-friendly.

Our Promise

When you shop with us, we promise that 5% is given back to a non profit organization that focuses on sustainability, plastic pollution or conservation. We are dedicated to make a positive chance in this world by reducing single use plastics, be the change you wish to see in the world!

Our Ethos

Our ethos is mostly about how we inspire to behave.


To make a difference and give real service something which cannot be bought or measured with money. This includes a combination of community service, charitable giving, diversity, and relationships with our business partners.


Building a quality product that lasts longer helps to minimize our plastic polypropylene (PP) footprint.


We are measured on our organization’s relationship with its workforce, which includes company culture, compensation, employee benefits, training and work environment. This then translates to the service and attention we provide our clients.
