Hey everyone! With the holiday season fast coming upon us, I wanted to review some things that we could use for gifts so the awesome people over at Glass Dharma has allowed me to review their glass straws!!!
Pros: great for the environment, pretty, makes you feel kinda classy, comes in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and designs, easy to clean and they have specially made brushes to clean them with in case anything gets stuck inside!, GREAT for the environment!
Another pro is the way it is made! It’s made with the same process the people at Pyrex make their glass! I love Pyrex and have some really old Pyrex dishes so I like that they are made the same way!
Guarantees: Breakage and satisfaction guarantee! Taken from their PDF regarding Glass Dharma: We take great pride in the workmanship of every piece we make. We use exclusively borosilicate glass (Pyrex® and Simax® are familiar brand names). Occasionally a crack may occur unnoticed before the annealing process takes place. This would significantly weaken the glass. We guarantee all of our work against such rare defects. It is also because these defects are sometimes difficult to detect that we guarantee against ANY breakage. This gives you the benefit of the doubt!!
Cons: none really, however I did learn that I tend to ‘grab’ straws with my teeth. No worries, it didn’t hurt. LOL
Great For: These straws would really make a great gift for the person that has everything. I would almost guarantee he/she wouldn’t have these! (Since they are fairly new) I also think they would make great hostess gifts! Of course, they’d make great gifts for anyone that loves to entertain!
My Two Cents: I really like them. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the concept, but I’m loving them. Did you know that it takes a plastic bag over a 100 years to degrade??? I think using these straws will do a nice little bit in my part of helping the environment! I read that stat and am still in shock! Furthermore, and I know this sounds crazy, but I can totally see me and my girls sipping our ice tea (we’re southern, you just have to understand) and enjoying great conversation! Makes me feel all grown up and sophisticated! LOL.
