Did you ever notice how one green step seems to lead to another? You start recycling bottles, then little by little, you find yourself with 6 different garbage cans. Or, you start with cloth diapers, and within months, you’ve got the entire family on “family cloth.” Ok, maybe not…but you get the idea. Sometimes one small change is all you need to get started on the path to the greater green good.
That’s why Glass Dharma straws are such a perfect holiday gift. From a drink at the bar to the kids’ smoothies, straws are everywhere, and what better way to give someone on your gift list a little eco-nudge in the right direction?
A straw? Made of glass!?
Glass is a great material for straws for so many reasons. Plastic can leach into your drink, plus it’s just completely wasteful since plastic straws are single-use items that do nothing but litter our landfills. Stainless steel straws are great, but you can’t see inside them and that always freaked me out. Glass is durable, easy to clean, and just plain cool. Plus, I always feel a little pampered when I use my Glass Dharma straws…and they make a great conversation piece!
But won’t they break?
They can, sure. But the annealing process used by Glass Dharma produces an extremely strong product, kind of like Pyrex®. Since I’m no expert, you’re probably better off just clicking over to find a full explanation of how they make their durable glass straws. But with regular use, they will be strong and sturdy and you don’t have to fear breaking them. There’s even a hassle-free “Lifetime Guarantee Against Breakage”! (Just don’t go testing them, because that may void your guarantee.)
Whether you’re drinking a monster green smoothie, fat bubble tea or a dainty cocktail, Glass Dharma has the right straw for you.
They keep your straw from rolling off the counter or table! Genius, right?
So for your mom, your BFF, your kids, your Secret Santa person at the office…anyone on your holiday gift list, really…pick up a few Glass Dharma straws! Everyone will be buzzing about your unique gift-giving skills, and you never know what other eco-friendly habits your gift might spark!
