With all the info and public awareness about plastics and how unsafe they are, we really try to limit our plastic usage as much as possible. Recently I realized we were using some plastics everyday and even worse, eating or rather drinking with them, yuck! I don’t want nasty plastic in my families mouth do you? Thank goodness I found Glass Dharma the original glass straw company.
Glass Dharma is the eco-friendly and safe alternative to my plastic straw worries and now that I’ve found them I’m never planning on using another plastic straw again. I know what you are thinking, glass? Won’t it break? What about biting? Those were my 2 major concerns because Tates is a straw biter and immediately I was nervous he would bite the straws and have broken glass in his mouth.
Made from the same type of glass as your well known kitchenware from Pyrex®, these straws are high quality and are very durable (highly unlikely to break from biting ). If your straws do break (it is a possibility) you get a replacement for FREE.
Available in several sizes, lengths and styles so you can customize your sipping! Shorter lengths are great for kids cups or even as fun stir sticks and the longer lengths have mom and dad covered whether drinking your morning iced coffee or a power shake on the way to a workout.
We were able to test out several of the cool types offered.
- “iced tea” (9.5mm diameter by 9 inches long) which is great for everyday liquids such as water, lemonade, iced tea and soda/pop.
- “Beautiful Bends” (9.5mm diameter by 91/2 inches long) bent slightly but used like the “iced tea”
- “smoothie” (2mm diameter by 9 inches long) which is perfect for thicker liquids such as smoothies and shakes.
- “decorative dots” (7mm diameter by 61/4 inches long) “sipper” straw which is perfect for juices and cocktails.
All straws are dishwasher safe and cleaning brushes as well as soft sleeve hemp storage storage bags are sold separately for your convenience.
Bottom line, we NEED more of these in every type offered! We can’t make ice cream floats without a fight over who gets to use the smoothie straw and we want to have all the fun colors of decorative dots too! Which straw type do you love?
Buy: you can purchase your straws in all the varieties of lengths and styles directly from the Glass Dharma website, don’t forget to buy your cleaning brushes! Make sure you join the “I Love My Straws” club to stay informed!
