I have never been one to use straws with my drinks, they just seemed like a waste to me. But when I became an avid smoothie and juice drinker I found myself wanting to drink with one. Being a huge advocate of recycling, reducing and reusing, I simply could not justify adding to the plastic pollution problem. After all I may be just one person but if we all thought that way and put it into practice it would make a huge difference, right? Did you know that besides plastic bags and plastic water bottles, plastic straws make up the bulk of single use plastics. The sad thing is a huge percentage of it ends up in the oceans and landfills.
Recently Glass Dharma sent me some of their glass straws to try. I was so excited! Now that I have started using them I can’t go back. I can’t explain exactly what it is but drinking with a glass straw just makes my smoothies taste better! They are so much more enjoyable to drink and they sit so elegantly in the glass. There are several sizes to choose from: the Sipper, Iced Tea, Smoothie and Bubble Tea which is nice so you can have a straw for different occasions. These straws just add a sense of charm to your drink.
I was skeptical about how easy they would be to clean. But I was wrong! They easily rinse off and if necessary there is a cleaning brush that easily removes any debris.
They are also very durable. I tend to be a clumsy person easily dropping or breaking things, so I was a little nervous about handling them. But they have proved to be very sturdy despite me and my heavy hands!
I highly recommend checking out Glass Dharma and their straws not only are they beautifully hand-made in the U.S.A., but they are fun to use, make lovely gifts, and most importantly are earth-friendly. Just think for every glass straw you use, it is replacing thousands of plastic straws that would end up in a landfill.
