Have you guys heard of Glass Dharma? They’re this great little glass straw company devoted to reducing waste. I love how they explain their goal: “Glass Straws are an excellent choice to promote reusable vs. “disposable”. In a perfect world, single use plastics will cease to exist. A straw is one small step that creates a spiraling thought process toward other re-usables. Together, we are making a difference that greatly impacts our environment!”
I also love the fact that they are non-toxic (no BPA in these straws!), dishwasher-safe, and can be used for hot and cold drinks! And, the straws are handmade, how cool is that?! I’ve dropped them a couple of times, but they did not shatter and seem pretty durable.
I was lucky enough to receive a set of samples to review AND offer you guys a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate!! You can see in the picture below that they sent 2 clear glass straws (one of them with a bent end), 1 long straw with pretty blue beads, and one short straw with pretty orange beads. They also included a bonus cleaning brush, although I have to say I haven’t used it once as the straws are so easy to clean by hand or just popping them in the dishwasher. I received the sample right before we moved, so I’ve been wanting to post this giveaway for ages – so excited to share the glass straw love 🙂
Now, it’s giveaway time!

Here are a few funny shots from the recent shoot I did with Ryon:Lockhart Photography for the updates to the new Made to Glow site (updates coming soon). I stuck a few of the straws in my bag and thought they’d make cute props for some of the pictures. Oh, you know, don’t mind me – just sipping on some green smoothie 😉
