  • About a month ago I had the chance to try Glass Dharma's glass straws in different shapes and sizes. I am absolutely impressed of all their products and at first I thought the glass straws would be made thin, but it actually is well made and thick. I also love the other straws with the decorative dots on it, I think it just adds character, it's festive, and something to talk about. My little girl loves the tiny red dotted straw because it is perfect for  her size. She loves using it when drinking her milk, water or some juice.

    Wondering if you could take the Glass Dharma glass straw with you? Absolutely! It is nice to have your own glass straw whenever and wherever you need it. Just use one of their Hemp sleeves to carry your glass straws safely in your purse. The nice thing about the Glass Dharma straw is, is that it is reusable, handmade in the USA, and you know you are doing a wonderful thing for our environment by choosing the glass straw instead of the plastic one. These glass straws are easy to  clean up with the use of their own brushes that you can buy from their website. Take note though, the brushes "do not automatically come with" all the Glass straw purchases so when you order some, don't forget to order the brushes as well. I personally like the glass straw myself and I have actually brought it with me on one of our trips.

    1. This is the first time I heard about a glass straw but I think its very useable.

    2. Interesting. My first to hear about this kind of straw. This is good for the kids as well as for toddlers that still drink bottle milk and training them to drink milk in a glass. I like the Decorative Dots and Beautiful bends.
