I've always been an eco-friendly type of person. Growing up on a military base, you're taught not to litter, not even cigarette butts. We were always struggling, so we saved cans to recycle for that little bit of extra money. Now, as a grown up, I try to encourage Monster to do the same thing. I try to stay away from plastic as much as possible. We recycle a lot of things here in the country, all the way down to the chicken poop (it makes GREAT fertilizer).
You can see here, when we go to the Zoo, we take our own cups, and I use my Glass Dharma straw! With a year pass, we end up going to the zoo a lot!
With Earth Day this year, I wanted to do something special, so I contacted my favorite glass straw company, Glass Dharma. I've always had a thing about drinking from a cup and ALWAYS use a straw, so using a glass straw is more preferable to me than plastic straws. They're also prettier in my opinion. Whenever I use my glass straw in public, I get people asking about it and I love to spread the word to be more eco-friendly.
What makes Glass Dharma straws so strong? They use BOROSILICATE GLASS which is the same glass used in brands such as Pyrex. These straws are dishwasher and microwave safe. There are also several different sizes available for anything from smoothies to tea. They can also do some special orders if you prefer those really tall cups!!
