Glass Dharma Giveaway!
Whether your child is a smoothie drinking kind of kid, or a "juice only please" little sprite, you probably have used a straw at some point. Unless you are in the know, that straw was probably plastic. Which I cannot understand, because if you read this blog, I have told you how much I love Glass Dharma straws. (just kidding, I am perfectly willing to tell you again).
The Glass Dharma line was created by glassblower David Leonhardt in response to the wide misuse of plastics. Glass straws do not leach toxins into your drinks. Each use of a glass straw, means one less plastic one sitting in a landfill-so think of how many plastic straws you are not using by using the glass straws for the rest of your life. They are made from borosilicate tubing which is the strongest glass commercially available. They are dishwasher and microwave safe and can be using in cold or hot drinks. They are handmade in the United States. Each type of straw comes in different sizes from sipper, to one that can be used to drink bubble tea. You can get a simple straight straw, one with glass dots to stop it from rolling, and one with a bend. And they come with a lifetime warranty against breakage! They will replace your broken straw for free! You probably will not have to worry about that since the straws are so strong. If they can make it in my home with my child, they can make it anywhere. I love the hemp straw sleeves (to take your straw with you of course) and the cleaning brushes make them even easier to clean.
The most nutrient rich (lumpy) smoothies and even bubble tea can be sipped through these luxurious straws. I always get a kick of whipping my Glass Dharma straw out when we are out on the town. I always get questions about it, and I always smile and fill the asker in on how wonderful and eco-friendly these babies are. They are a permanent fixture in our home.
