Welcome to Day 1 of my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. I am extremely excited to introduce you to the first item on my guide, Glass Dharma glass drinking straws, which are located under the Green “Eco Friendly” products on my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide.
Glass straws are an ingenious way to decrease our carbon foot print and reduce waste. I have to admit, I was skeptical but my curiosity really got the better of me. Unbreakable Glass Straws, Really?
Glass Dharma (glass drinking straws):
- Green product: use of glass straws reduces use of plastic straws, less waste in landfills
- Glass Dharma straws are made using an “annealing” process which means, “No Breakage” for me and you.
- Protects teeth from stains (coffee, fruit juices and tea)
- Protects teeth from erosion caused by acidic drinks (lemonade, alcohol)
- Dishwasher and microwave safe
- Kid & Environmentally “Friendly”
Glass Dharma straws are available in many lengths and diameters, depending on your drink or personal preference.
- Ice Tea Straws
- Sipping Straws
- Smoothie Straws
- Shorty Straws
My personal preference is the Iced Tea beautiful bend. It’s long enough to fit my X-lg drink cups from most fast food chains and it has a permanent bend built right in. I use it for all of my drinks. Coffee, Iced tea, Water etc. I received a stainless steel cleaning brush, perfectly sized to clean the straws.The bristles in the brush are medical grade nylon and like the stainless steel designed to last. However, I found simply rinsing the straws after each use or putting them in the dishwasher works just fine. (Please Note: Glass Dharma Straws DO NOT come with cleaning brushes, brushes are sold separately.) My boys prefer the shorty straws which are sized just right for juice boxes and smaller cups or glasses.
It’s the Holidays and you want to spruce up that drab dining room table or maybe you’re having a cocktail party and need a way to distinguish one guest straw, from another. Glass Dharma Decorative Dots are your answer to both dilemma’s. Embellished with colorful orbs of color their are so many ways you can use these straws to decorate or add a hint of color and pizazz to any setting.
Now that you’ve made the commitment to using glass straws you need something to carry them in, right? No worries, Glass Dharma offers Hemp soft sleeves/ carrying cases in 3 sizes and in assorted colors so you can carry your straws with you at all times. Machine washable and made from 100% Hemp webbing & canvas. Easily fit into a purse, pocket, backpack or car glove box for easy access when on the go. Glass Dharma straws are also sold in sets in case one straw just won’t do or you want to purchase a set for the friend that has Everything!
