GlassDharma, Glass Drinking Straw Review & $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway!!!

GlassDharma Logo

Glass straws may sound strange to you at first, but if you are trying to go green, they will make sense.  Think about all the plastic drinking straws that get used once and are trash.  It adds up and while it may not be something that you will find in fast food or other restaurants, it is something that you can start in your home.

GlassDharma makes glass drinking straws made exclusively of BOROSILICATE GLASS – the strongest commercially available.  Using a formula provided by Corning, Inc., their straws are annealed under computer controlled conditions.  The temperature and ramping rates dictated by this formula are crucial to reducing residual stress in the glass and give it the highest possible levels of resistance to thermal and physical shock.  The straws are also designed not to have a weak point that would invite breakage.  GlassDharma  takes great care during the development of their designs, production processes, the monitoring of their kilns and quality control procedures making their straws the most durable on the market. This is what defines GlassDharma as the industry leader.

I received a variety of glass straws from GlassDharma to review, they also sent me the brushes to clean them which are so helpful in making sure the straws are squeaky clean and fresh to use again and again.  They are strong and they do feel much better than cheap plastic straws and they also give an elegance to ordinary smoothies and drinks.

    I didn’t realize that plant based ‘imitation’ plastics were just as damaging as real plastics. I know my mom uses disposable straws even at home and I’ll definitely be pointing her to glass dharma
