Glass Dharma ~ The Original Glass Straw {giveaway}






Next time you reach for a plastic straw for your drink, take a second to think about it. I have to admit that when I think of making a difference and eliminating plastics from my daily life, I have never once thought about drinking straws. Since learning about Glass Dharma, I am now well aware of the problem of plastic straws each and every time I unwrap a straw and put it in my soft drink.

Glass Dharma sent me four of their very cool glass straws so I could see what all the buzz was about. They were an immediate success at my home - my kids took right to them.



I feel 100% confident letting my children drink from these straws, because I know that Glass Dharma only uses the strongest, and highest quality of glass which is commercially available. To give added piece of mind, they even back their straws with a life time guarantee! Plus, no worries about toxins from plastics leaching into their drinks when the kids are using glass straws.



The straws arrived individually, safely packaged, and upon opening I thought they were fantastic. Another one of those - why didn't I think of that moments? They look very classy and the glass itself is thick and smooth. I guess I didn't really know what to expect from glass straws, but, these are truly awesome.

There are many choices at Glass Dharma. From straws with decorative dots, to straws with a bend, to the classic straw, and the straws are available in different lengths and widths. Use the nifty cleaning brush (sold separately) for keeping your straw clean.


We have had our Glass Dharma straws for a couple of weeks, and I am really enjoying them. They add a certain sparkle to my dining table and they are withstanding the wear and tear of use of our family. Glass Dharma drinking straws can be used in either hot or cold drinks.

To purchase or find out more visit Glass Dharma. All straws can be purchased either individually, or in a set

The Simple Elegance Extra Long drinking straw

A full 10" lets you reach all the way to the bottom of those really tall glasses and mugs (think mojitos). Your choice of 2 diameters, 9.5mm and 12mm.

I would choose the 10" X 12mm straw! shern.cynthia@yahoo.com
