I am always willing to try out new products that are environmentally friendly, so I was really excited to review a set of glass straws from GlassDharma!
“Take a look around and you’ll find that most folks are gravitating toward awareness that plastic pollution is poisoning our environment. With the immense amount of plastic (especially single-use plastics) being dumped into our landfills and oceans, it is easy to feel overwhelmed with no easy solution in sight. There is no one single answer to our planet’s pollution problems but we believe in significant progress through a number of avenues. We cannot expect our environment to absorb wastes that our global lifestyle is producing without substantial negative effects.”
I have been aware, for a while now, that plastic is not the best choice for my family. Not only is a lot of plastic harmful for us to be using, but it is not great for our environment. I no longer purchase water in plastic bottles and instead use a refillable glass water bottle (that I absolutely love). We also use our metal utensils rather than resorting to plastic forks and spoons even though they can be very convenient. Now we have glass straws that have replaced our usual plastic ones that we were using.
“Since March of 2007 GlassDharma has been producing glass drinking straws. The GlassDharma mission is to create world-wide awareness about single use plastics and how damaging plastic straws are to our environment. Glass Straws provide an alternative that eliminates the need for straws made from plastic.”
I was sent a set of glass straws from GlassDharma that includes several different sizes. There is even a decorative straw that has blue dots on it (my kids’ favorite). I love them all, but definitely have a preference toward the straw with a bend in it. It is what I use most often and works great! Along with my set of straws, I received an extra, custom made straw that is perfect for the recyclable cup from Starbucks! If you have one of those cups, get rid of that green plastic straw and get yourself the straw from GlassDharma!!
These straws are super durable and are kid-tough, but in the event of breakage, you don’t have to worry. Each glass straw is guaranteed and will be replaced if it breaks. How is that for a great product and great customer service?! I love the fact that GlassDharma makes several different sizes of straws to you can find the perfect one for the drink you are having. Need a wider straw for a smoothie? GlassDharma has it. Just a straw for soda? They have those too. The fact that these straws are reusable is a huge perk as well. They are easy to wash (with the brush you can get) and we will never run out of them! We love our new glass straws and won’t be going back to plastic!
