Glass Dharma with a Giveaway


I really enjoy drinking with straws, I find that many drinks just taste better when you are drinking them through a straw.  Call me weird but that's me.  Some drinks have to have a straw, how can you drink a smoothie without a straw?  I can't!  I was finding it harder and harder to find bigger plastic straws and then came across Glass Dharma!  They are hand-made, fire-polished and made of borosilicate tubing the strongest type of glass available.  AND they are guaranteed for life!  For Life people!  That's forever!


If that's not enough for you just look at how beautiful these straws are, they are gorgeous and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes with colored glass dots or plain, bent or straight.  Don't forget about the environmental aspect of a glass straw.  I first thought how many straws can really end up in the landfill?  Think about this:


As of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals PER DAY! (Per their website) How many of those served do you think were given a plastic straw? I hope it is becoming obvious just how big of a problem these pesky little plastic straws can be. Remember, this is just from McDonalds!! Get the picture??


Here are the features and some more reasons why Glass Dharma is a great choice!

Plain and simple, here’s how and why they work:


- Glass straws don’t leach toxins into your food as you drink.
