I've been a huge fan of Glass Dharma for a few years now and support and appreciate everything they are doing for our planet and all the people who live on it.
They are doing yet another incredible great Earth Day giveaway this year by giving away 1000 glass straws during the month of April.
After almost two years of using my Glass Dharma straws I can honestly say they are virtuously unbreakable. I'm pretty rough on things and have dropped mine WAY more than once but, they aren't even chipped. They are built to last and handmade in the USA. And, if you do happen to break one, they come with a lifetime guarantee!
I was fortunate enough to be able to hep promote their 2014 Earth Day 1000 straw giveaway and also received some new straws as well as a carrying case and I couldn't be happier!
I chose to go with the 9.5"Ice Tea Straws which are very versatile and can be used in most any "to-go" cups at any restaurant be it dine-in or fast food. They are easily washable and with the carrying case, great and ready to go in my purse at all times.
Not only are the straws made in the USA but the carrying cases are also made of hemp which is biodegradable and compostable. What could be more Earth friendly?
Here is my new straw in its new case. :)
A shot of my new straw in my daily dose of soda.
Although may not recommendable, I was able to fit both new straws in the same carrying case so I have one for me and one for hubby when on the go.
They were like two straws in a blanket once all wrapped up and ready for the purse.
I highly recommend everyone begin to use Glass Dharma's glass straws. Not only are they inexpensive and a small thing that each person can do to help the environment are fun, easy and gorgeous!
They offer sets with carrying cases for families as well as straws with colored "dots" so when you have friends over, everyone easily knows whose drink is who's! How much fun is that? You no longer have to write your name on a cup or bottle with a sharpie.
You can find lots of facts on their site about how plastic is one of the most polluting things in our environment but also about how plastic straws are always on of the top 10 collected items cleaned off our beaches each year. "as of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals PER DAY!" I'm sure that statistic is much higher now 6 years later. And, thats only one restaurant chain. Imagine what the total could be?
You can help by simply using a Glass Dharma straw. It's elegany, beautiful, easy to clean and carry and will most likely be asked in public about it. Together we can make one small thing like a reusable straw change the world.
So, Glass Dharma is giving away at $25 gift code to get any products you wish on their site. Simply leave a comment on stating which straw you prefer and why. You will be a believer from the first sip. Promise! Also, any possible restuarant owners out there please consider using Glass Dharma straws in your restaurant versus plastic straws. It will make a difference.
