Glass Dharma

Reusable Glass Straws

Holiday Gift Guide

If you know me, as many of you do, at least as a blogger, you know that I am pretty concerned about my carbon footprint. I have done reviews for all natural cleaners, organic foods, and reusable shopping bags, but this review is different. This review is one that I bet not a lot of you know about. This review is for reusable glass straws from Glass DharmaNo more straw wrappers, no more plastic straws dumped into our landfills, no more waste! 

But Jess you might say, I don't use that many straws, its not a big deal. Well friends it is a big deal! I live just 20 minutes from Lake Michigan and the Dunes are easily one of my favorite places in the whole world. Did you know that plastic straws are in the top 10 items picked up on beach cleanups? McDonalds uses somewhere in the neighborhood of 50million straws a day. Thats over 18 billion straws a year that will end up in the trash. Did I strike a chord yet? 

Glass Dharma straws are not only better for the environment, but they don’t leak toxins into your food or drink, and each straw is made in America! They also have a hassle-free lifetime guarantee. Since 2007 Glass Dharma has been producing glass drinking straws in order to help raise awareness about single use plastic straws and the damage they can cause to you and the world around you. Once a single handedly run company, Glass Dharma now is supported by 10 people and has an average annual growth of 50%. Id say they are well on their way to their goal!

I was sent 4 different types of glass straws from Glass Dharma, and they are really neat!
Glass Dharma Straws come in 4 different sizes.

We didn't have any smoothies laying around and Im totally lost on what bubble tea is so I just used my straw in my Diet Coke and called it a day. It worked great! 

Love this straw! Its super elegant. 
Carrying around a glass straw might be a strange idea to most of you. Fear not though, Glass Dharma has a line of straw cases to fit your personality. My favorite is the purple hemp case.

My hubby and I have a plethora of reusable cups at our house but we can never get the straws as clean as Id like. Thanks to Glass Dharma, that problem is no more! They offer a variety of straw cleaners that work perfectly!!! 

My new BFF!

 I had my straw experts help me test them out over at Bama's house and we received positive feedback from everyone involved. We even left a few Glass Dharma straws and a cleaner over at Bama's so they can be used the next time Steph and the kids are up.
S wanted the little green straw. She said it was just her size. 
B wanted the giant "bendy" straw. It was about 5 times bigger than his yogurt but he said it worked well.

Want it? Buy it!
Glass Dharma is a great company with a great goal. I really suggest you check them out and help reduce your carbon footprint, one straw at a time. I can't think of a cooler present for someone that loves to help the environment!
