Glass Dharma has been producing glass straws since 2007 when they realized the negative affect plastic straws were having on the environment. Since then, they have sold over 200,000 straws so far. They have a goal of 6 million straws!
The straws are made from borosilicate tubing and are very strong. This allows you to be confident of your straws not breaking easily. Glass Dharma also assures customers that by using glass instead of plastic, you are keeping toxins out of your body
With the high amount of plastic straws being used at restaurants, Glass Dharma has a mission to share their knowledge and teach people that by using a glass straw you are helping raise awareness of overuse of plastic.
Here's a video courtesy of youtube where you can see the difference they are so proud of.
I was curious about how the glass straws would work. I like using straws but don't ever buy them. Now I don't have to worry, I will always have one available!
I have already used my straw and love it. It does take a little getting used to with the feel of it and hardness compared to plastic, but I am happy with it! It is dishwasher safe, and works well with both hot and cold drinks. There are many different types of straws available with different sizes and some with colorful dots to make them extra special.
For normal orders, the straws come in individual packaging in order to help reduce the need for excess packing. This also helps with the environment. They don't automatically come with a cleaning brush. Those are ordered separately. Mine arrived all together for review purposes.

Disclosure: I received 2 straws and a cleaning brush in exchange for an honest review. My opinions may differ from yours.
