When I pour my self a drink or my children I usually pour it in a class and pop a straw in the glass. When I heard that straws contain toxins in them I wanted to see what my other options are. My daughter has a illness so now I am more cautious about things now. I came across a wonderful site called GlassDharma that makes glass straws. There company makes all shapes and size of straws. They also make straws that have colorful glass pieces that are attached to the glass straw. Let me tell you they look amazing.

A little about the company. GlassDharma was found by David Leonhardt. David Leonhart has been a glassblower for over 15 years. David Leonhart started working for a local glass shop in town and he noticed that the owner of the shop had glass drinking straw that where for sale. He immediately recognized that here was a partial solution to our plastics problem. Now granted there a lot more plastic in the world than drinking straws, but bear with me a minute and let me put things in perspective ... As of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals PER DAY! (Per their website) How many of those served do you think were given a plastic straw? I hope it is becoming obvious just how big of a problem these pesky little plastic straws can be. Remember, this is just from McDonalds!! Get the picture?? So ... I created the GlassDharma line of glass drinking straws and this website to contribute one solution to the misuse of plastics in our society.

I was sent a 4 beautiful set of GlassDharma glass straws for my review. When I received these straws they where packed very well and none where damaged which was a great plus. They where in each in their own package with a cleaning brush for that certain straw. Each straw was different sizes and lengths. I know what your thinking they do make bushes to fit that certain size you purchase. So what I really like about this product is that it does not leak toxins into what you are using your straw for. Now I know that my daughter is safe and not ingesting dangerous toxins like plastic straw do. Also you are helping be eliminating plastic straws going into your local landfill so your are partaking to help the environment with GlassDharma straws. What I love about these products that they are microwave and dishwasher safe. The true test is do my children like them? Yes they prefer the straw with the stones in the side of the glass straw. They really think that is amazing. Although I notice that they are always touching it and seeing if it will come out and we know they wont. So they pass the children test.

These would make a great gift for the holidays. They are very classy and nice. If you want to get a great stocking stuffer this would be it. I bet no one would even think of this gift so it would be one of a kind and from the heart. If you would want to see more of their amazing gifts please.
