GlassDharma Glass Straw Review and Giveaway (ends 2/6)

 photo GlassDharma123.jpgGlassDharma glass straws are your environmentally-friendly, no waste, reusable drinking straws. We are little by little changing to a greener household and finding reusable anything has become a mission. Straws were one of those items that would be at the bottom of the list of things to replace to be more environmentally friendly. I am so glad I found this option for my family and we love them. The glass straws are made of Borosilicate glass; it is a type of glass with a very low thermal expansion, making it resistant to thermal shock.

We received 4 of their straws:
9.5 – “Simple Elegance Shorty” – 6.25″ long
9.5X9 – Green “Decorative Dots” – 9″ long
12X9 SE – Simple Elegance Smoothie Straw 9″ long
9.5BB – “Beautiful Bends” 9″ long

The straws are well made; they are very thick and will not break easily. I have not try them on the dishwasher, but I have clean them well by just running them underwater and by using the added accessory brush you can also purchase from GlassDharma. The straws are only a tiny bit wider in circumference than your average 8” plastic straw, so watch your front teeth until you get used to it. I have not tried their breakage endurance, because I really don’t want to break one of them to see how high they need to be drop before they break.

Why are GlassDharma Glass Straws so great:
Safe and non-toxic
Create zero waste
Made of strongest glass
Very affordable
Handmade in the USA
Backed by a no-hassle lifetime guarantee

I was worry about these straws because of my son, but although I have not tried a breakage test, they have withstood some drops on our counter and sink; no chip or breakage so far. We no longer used disposable plastic straws. We are very pleased with these glass straws.
