Glass Dharma review and giveaway

I have a secret to share with y'all.

I love straws. Drinking straws, that is.

I use them with everything I drink. Water, diet coke, iced tea, even coffee. At restaurants and at home. Always.

And I recently stumbled upon a great company with a great product, Glass Dharma. Glass Dharma is the original maker of glass straws, and they are handmade in the USA.

Glass Dharma makes glass straws, and from my point of view, they are both practical and pretty. They are sustainable, reusable, easy to clean, safe for hot and cold drinks and dishwasher safe.

Glass Dharma was kind enough to send me a sampling of their products.
I received four straws, two cleaning brushes and a hemp straw sleeve.

When I told my husband about them, he seems very unsure about the idea of glass drinking straws, but we were both impressed with how sturdy and well made they were. The glass is thick and seems to be very durable. In fact, Glass Dharma offers a lifetime guarantee!
If you love using straws in your drinks, then Glass Dharma  is the way to go. 

If you're looking for something prettier and classier than plastic, then Glass Dharma is the way to go.

If you're looking for something environmentally friendly and reusable, then Glass Dharma is the way to go.

I've been using my Glass Dharma straws frequently since I received them, and I really do like them a lot!

Adds a little elegance to my diet coke! 

Perfect for my iced coffee! 

Regardless of your straw wants or needs, Glass Dharma has something perfect for you. Their straws come in a variety of lengths and thinknesses, and you can choose ones that are straight or that have the little bend in them. 

You can purchase these beautiful glass straws directly from the Glass Dharma website. 

And one lucky reader of loving the little things will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate gift code to use on any of Glass Dharma's products on their website. How awesome is that?! 

To enter, please leave a comment telling me your favorite beverage.

Giveaway closes Friday, June  24 at 9:00 am CST.
Winner will be announced on the blog and notified by email on Friday, June 24. Good luck!

In the interest of full disclosure, I was provided with the previously mentioned products from Glass Dharma. I received no compensation for my review, and my thoughts are entirely my own.

  9. My favorite drink is iced coffee!

    I love drinking with straws too!! I have a bunch of plastic straws but sometimes they have holes in them and they're pretty flimsy (not to mention probably bad for the environment). So glass straws sound amazing!

  10. Hmmm favorite beverage- probably just plain ol' water. But a good Bloody Mary makes me happy too, and I think the Glass Straws would be more exciting in one of them rather than just in water:)

  11. my favorite drink has got to be either tea (hot and iced) or sparkling water. I have a cup with a hard plastic straw that I can rewash, but I don't know how long it will last! The glass ones are so nice!
