About Glass Dharma

Launched in 2007 by David Leonhardt, Glass Dharma provides customers with safe reusable alternatives to disposable drinking straws. With enough “plastic straws produced annually to fill over 46 thousand full-sized school buses,” Glass Dharma strives to make an environmental impact. Offering completely reusable borosilicate glass drinking straws, Glass Dharma is working to lessen the affects on the environment and our world’s resources.

About Glass Drinking Straws

Glass Dharma drinking straws are made of borosilicate glass, which is resistant to thermal shock, is non-porous, and is hypo-allergenic. This is the same type of glass used in high end kitchenware and is the strongest commercially available glass on the market. Borosolicate glass is durable, microwave and dishwasher safe, and free of toxins. Under normal use, these drinking straws are tough and will not break. However, Glass Dharma stands behind their products and their cause and provides a lifetime guarantee for all glass drinking straws which they sell. If your straw ever breaks, you can send it back and they will ship a new one to you.

Review

As part of this giveaway, our family tried out Glass Dharma straws in several styles (simple elegance, beautiful bends, and decorative dots) and sizes (sipper, iced tea, and smoothie).  All  of the straws were of a great quality, but there were definite favorites.

The simple design of their basic straws is definitely elegant. With clean lines and a non-porous structure, the straws are easy to clean, especially with the little cleaning brushes. My concerns of not being able to adequately clean the classes have been put to rest. I’ve spoken with families who have been using their Glass Dharma straws for over a year and all report that there is no issue keeping their glass straws sparkling clean, even with left in cow’s milk.

The beautiful beds have aesthetic appeal, but I have to say that absolutely everyone in our family loves the decorative dots. They may be called decorative, but they are also functional. The glass dots on the straws allow you to set a straw down on a flat surface without fear that it may roll off. As they are different colors, there is no more question to whom a glass belongs. Glass Dharma offers sets with 4 or 6 colors (as well as individual straws), perfect for many families. We have ordered a set decorative for our family of 6 to enjoy.

As far as sizes go, the majority of our family prefers the iced tea size. These seem to be a great size, and we haven’t had any issue drinking anything from water to smoothies with them. I will say that my two year old loves the sipper size and has decided that it is little, just like her.

BUY IT!

You can purchase your own glass drinking straws at Glass Dharma. Glass Dharma offers a wide range of straws, from sippers to thick bubble tea straws and sizes in between. Whether you are ordering single straws or economical sets, you are certain to find what you are looking for. Check out their accessories for the perfect cleaning brushes or hemp cotton sleeves. Whether you are buying a set for your family or for others, Glass Dharma drinking straws make a fabulous, eco-friendly gift!
