(Fort Bragg – CA) –June 3, 2011 – Glass Straws are the latest eco-trend with GlassDharma leading the way as more and more people across the globe say “No Thanks!” to plastic straws. Known for their uniqueness, strength, and beauty, GlassDharma straws are about the best life has to offer – healthy living promoting a healthy world with a “touch of glass”.

Glass Straws – Reuse and Reduce
David Leonhardt, founder and master lampworker at GlassDharma, believes in the mission behind his exquisite glass straw product line. David explains how Reusing glass straws Reduces the waste that shows up in our landfills and the oceans. “My commitment is 3-fold – creating the highest quality, most durable glass straws, having them be elegant and stylish and for them to serve an important purpose! As I work with other people in the sustainable living community, educating people about the benefits of glass and the negative effects of plastic, I benefit in return, by learning more about living with a greener footprint.”

GlassDharma Straws are Durable, Sustainable and Elegant
The GlassDharma Quality Control department ensures the quality of each and every straw. Offering an unprecedented lifetime guarantee, GlassDharma stands behind their product, and promises that if it breaks, it will be repaired or replaced. GlassDharma straws are made from borosilicate glass, the safest and strongest glass commercially available; they are even dishwasher and microwave safe! The GlassDharma team is so confident with their product, that they will extend a full refund if a customer is not satisfied. When asked how reusable steel straws compare to GlassDharma glass straws, David states, “We have been told that people don’t like the metallic taste, and that they love the ability to see that their GlassDharma straws are sparkling clean on the inside especially when they use our stainless steel cleaning brushes! Try them and let us know what you think!”
