Glass Dharma Glass Straw Review and Giveaway US only ends 9/

David Leonhardt.
has been a lampworker (glassblower) for over 10 years. His  wife, Gail & himself recently moved from the Sacramento, CA area,to their dream of living on the Mendocino Coast. 
I started doing some work for a local glass shop in town and noticed that the owner had glass drinking straws for sale. I had never heard of these before and I am always intrigued by something made out of glass that I hadn’t thought of.  I was struck by the unique elegance in such a simple item

I love, love straws for just about everything, but made it a point to stop using them after I realized how bad they were for the environment. After all if I were to use one straw a day, per  different item I drank, that would be 3 straws everyday x 365=1095 

That is alot of straws, and lately I have really been on this eco kick, we now recycle everything possible, and truth be told some weeks out recycle bin is overflowing. But our Trash Bin is barely full, that really makes me feel good especially since I only cloth diaper part time. One way I cut back on using so much trash is by switching to glass straws. I love them, and they aren't near as breakable as I thought they would be. washing them is super easy, and I love the fact they offer different sizes. 
Glass Dharma offers a variety of different styles of glass straws, and I love the fact they offer a Guarantee:
If, for any reason*, your GlassDharma Drinking Straw breaks, you may return the broken straw for repair or replacement. If we cannot restore it to its original condition, we will gladly replace it.

I received 4 of these,  and I love the fact I now have a straw for any of my needs, and the decorative dots are also that much more fun.

But for the times when you want a straw that bends, 
Beautiful Bends
Beautiful Bends are great for that, and really are neat. All in all was making the switch worth it boy was it ever. I never have to worry about running out of clean straws, they are perfect for Drinks,Cans of Pop, and even just a glass of tea. Well worth the cost in a matter of a few months, and a great buy.
