Strong and Durable

It is the same type of glass that your vintage glass coffee pot or your Pyrex pie plate is made from. Borosilicate glass is most well known for having very low thermal expansion, making it resistant to thermal shock, more so than any other common glass. It is also non-porous and Hypo-allergenic, microwave and dishwasher safe, and contains no lead.
Under normal use, your borosilicate glass straw will not break. If it is dropped, there is a possibility it may chip or crack. If your Glass Dharma glass straw ever breaks, chips, or cracks, it is covered under the Glass Dharma Lifetime Guarantee Against Breakage.
Glass straws are an easy way to add charm and beauty to your day. Breakfast smoothies, iced tea at lunch time, or even a tall glass of cool iced water all look a bit more graceful with a glass straw.
Your guests will delight in receiving a beverage with a glass straw. Each hot or cold drink you serve suddenly becomes a special occasion. Kids love using glass straws, too!
Glass straws look beautiful displayed as a bouquet in a “vase” in the china cabinet, brought out for use when the beverages are poured; or simply stick them in a tall drinking glass and put them out on the bar or counter for easy access. Glass straws are the perfect accent to your table and barware, and compliment casual to sophisticated table settings.

About GlassDharma, the company
GlassDharma is on a mission to create world-wide awareness about single use plastics and how damaging plastic straws are to our environment.
Company founder, and glassblower, David Leonhardt moved to the Mendocino coast of California and found inspiration in the form of a glass straw. David was struck by the unique elegance in such a simple item, and realized he could contribute one solution to the problem of throw away plastics in our society. In 2007, David founded GlassDharma.
The GlassDharma philosophy is not to try to be all things to all people; rather to focus on what they can and do best. GlassDharma makes beautiful, elegant, long lasting glass drinking straws to replace as many single use plastic straws as possible.
The Problem with Plastic Straws
A single straw may not seem like a big problem, until you put it in perspective. Just one single fast food chain can serve an average of 50 billion meals per day. Chances are, each one of those meals contains at least one drink, with at least one straw.
Enough plastic straws are produced annually to fill over 46 thousand full sized school buses!
These straws are either headed for a landfill, where they will never decompose, or to an ocean or waterway near you. Plastic straws are always in the top 10 of number of items collected during beach cleanups.
GlassDharma doesn't stop at presenting you with an eco-friendly and long-lasting solution to the problem with plastics. Each GlassDharma straw is crafted with beauty and elegance here in the USA. GlassDharma provides a Lifetime Guarantee against breakage; if your straw ever breaks, GlassDharma will replace it for free.
GlassDharma is working to educate the public about reducing the amount of plastic straws endangering our environment. David Leonhardt and GlassDharma are striving towards their goal of providing glass straws to 2% of the United States population. GlassDharma glass straws are a beautiful way to add elegance to your world, while taking one small step towards making it better.
