I ran across Glass Dharma, a company that specializes in glass drinking straws. I was so intrigued. I contacted them and was thrilled when they sent me some samples to review. Before I get into how awesome the straws are, let me tell you a bit about the company.
Glass Dharma was created by David Leonhardt, a glassblower who realized how much waste is created by plastic straws. Think about it for a second. One glass straw will replace thousands of disposable ones. You can use it at home over and over again, and even take them out with you where ever you go. Imagine yourself never using a plastic straw again.
Ok, and now about the straws! I was skeptical at first about how well a glass straw would hold up in my house full of boys. I’m glad to report that with normal daily use, and being dropped once (oops), they held up fabulously. They are made of the strongest commercial glass available and ever if they do break, they are backed by the company’s lifetime guarantee.
These straws are available in three styles: Simple Elegance, Beautiful Bends, and Decorative Dots. My favorite are the Simple Elegance and I have used them in everything from soda to hot coffee. They are much less wasteful, elegant, and non-toxic. What more could you want?
