Dharma Glass Straws

Dharma Glass Straws are just that, glass straws. 

Did you know that in 2008 McDonald's served an average of 56 million meals per day (per their website)?  Not to mention all the other restaurants that are passing out drinks!  How many straws could the world possibly use in one day?  

David Leonhardt and his wife decided to do something about it.  They created the GlassDharma line of glass drinking straws to help reduce the use of plastic in our society.  Not only are they environmentally friendly but, they are beautiful and soo useful. 



You can purchase them as singles, with carrying cases for travel and also have little brushes to clean them with.  They also have a LIFETIME guarantee.  I'm sure by now you all know that I'm a little accident prone, I've dropped my straws at least twice.  They did NOT even come close to cracking.


I was sent four different types  and sizes of their straws to try out.  One of the long straight ones called "simple elegance" for tea, colas, etc.  One that is curved called "beautiful bends" (also tall) and then a "decorative dots" that has little brown bubbles on the outside (so cool) and then a short "decorative dots" little blue bubbles.  They come in six different colors (so you can keep track of who's drink belongs to who if you have company over, or just for fun.)  


Love the short blue one.

The brown decorative dots.

I am loving the straws.  I take my tall, simple elegance, straight one with me in my purse and each time I take it out and use it I think I'm saving at least ONE straw each time.

You can also order them in full sets.  I'm thinking of ordering a full set, or a few to give away as gifts.  They are so elegant and such an innovative idea I think everyone that tries them would love them. 

Glass Straws are an excellent choice to promote reusable vs. “disposable”.  In a perfect world, single use plastics will cease to exist.  A straw is one small step that creates a spiraling thought process toward other re-usables.  Together, we are making a difference that greatly impacts our environment!  We guarantee that GlassDharma products will stand up to surpass your expectations in quality and durability.  You can also read an article by clicking here about how glass is better than plastic for you anyway.
