David, founder/owner of GlassDharma, makers of the original glass straw, writes in his website:
We received a beautiful array of glass straws along with a cleaning brush. Each straw was securely packaged in their own little box. Our family has been using them on a daily basis for our smoothies, green tea, water and soft drinks. We tossed them in the dishwasher and abused them during their visit; which only proved what an exceptional product GlassDharma produces.

The hubby loves the “Beautiful Bends” straw; which is slightly bent to “reach” for your lips and is slightly longer. I’m in love with the “Decorative Dots” glass straws. The colored dots add both fun and functionality. Used to color code your drinks (or just plain decorate your place setting), they also keep your straw from rolling off of the table or counter.

Why glass? Because the elegance and purity of drinking from glass will avoid any exposure to BPA and other chemical reactions. We were impressed with how wonderful our beverages tasted too!
Most people know of the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre by its more popular name, the Eastern Pacific Garbage Patch. In actuality, the accumulation of plastics in all major gyres is more like a soup, with small bits floating just below the surface, barely visible. There are no islands of plastic floating out in the big blue, which unfortunately means that the problem is larger than the naked eye can see. – Ryan Elizabeth Cope, a recent graduate from the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine.
The idea of “reuse” ignites as the customers of GlassDharma think about the many drinking straws they “throw away”. The quality made reusable borosilicate glass straw becomes a symbol, a reminder, a beginning that leads to more thought about other things we “throw away” but could replace with reusable options.
We are converts and will only use Glass Straws from here on out. We love this product, the ocean, sea life and the environment… Together we make a difference!
