I discovered Glass Dharma glass straws
a couple of years ago, and we have used no other straws since then. Even my kids refuse to use plastic or metal straws – it makes that much of a difference! And it is especially amazing when you find a business that makes a wonderful product AND has a company culture that supports your beliefs. Glass Dharma has both, and I love buying from them.
Like every family, we drink a lot of different types of beverages. We love water, iced tea, smoothies and even bubble tea. Glass Dharma makes straws to accommodate all of our favorite drinks, and all of our favorite drinking vessels. And if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, they will make a custom straw according to your specifications! Their standard line includes straws in many different lengths, with holes from 2.5mm to 11mm. Their website is great at helping you choose what you need and want as far as sizes go. Glass Dharma is constantly thinking of new ways to make consumers’ lives easier and to eliminate plastic from our lives. For example, none of their packaging contains any plastic or bubble wrap. And when they discovered that they had shorter pieces of straw left over from the creation process, they started making those available for people to use with shorter cups, or for children to use.
I love glass straws because they do not affect the taste of whatever I am drinking, they can withstand the suction required for drinking thicker liquids like smoothies, and also because they are just beautiful. I am glad to know that we are not throwing plastic straws away anymore, and getting an even better product than we could have imagined. Glass straws have become my new go-to gift for wedding and Christmas presents, and for hostess gifts. Everyone loves them, and they make a great conversation piece. You can even purchase etched straws with a standard message, or with your own custom message.
Glass Dharma goes above and beyond when making their products, too. All products are hand-made in the United States, using resources found primarily in the US. If they need to import anything from around the world, they do so responsibly, and never from China. Their straws are much healthier because they don’t contain chemicals or toxins, and they are extremely durable. Each straw comes with a 100% guarantee for either refund or replacement if they break. Because of the special process that Glass Dharma uses, though, they are extremely unlikely to break under normal use.

Glass Dharma also gives back. They often donate to environmental groups, and in their Earth Day straw giveaway, they gave away 5,000 straws after individuals completed a plastic pollution educational session. They create a high-quality product, stand behind it, and work to educate the public. On top of all of that, they have excellent customer service.
I challenge you to try a Glass Dharma straw – you will never use plastic or metal again. You can buy your favorite straws, from Camelbak straws that go in a water bottle, to coffee and drink straws, individually or in sets. You will love them, and they give you a great feeling because not only do you get to enjoy a refreshing drink, you are actively helping the environment. It’s a great combination!
