Glass Dharma Review and Giveaway

From An Opera Singer in the Kitchen

Time for another giveaway my blogger friends! Who is ready for it?

Even though I was not able to cook this weekend I was able to enjoy some green smoothies with a new product from Glass Dharma.

From An Opera Singer in the Kitchen

I received 3 different straws that can be used for any drink, like Boba tea (Tea with tapioca balls), smoothies, or even cocktails!

I do not know about you, but when it comes to using straws I use them everywhere and for every drink! After reading the amount of waste I contribute by using plastic straws I decided that glass straws are the way to go.

David Leonhardt, a glassblower and the founder of Glass Dharma, the original hand-made glass drinking straw, created his own line of drinking straws to “contribute one solution to the misuse of plastics in our society.”

I was inspired by this company because I saw how important it is to protect the environment even if it seems so small, it makes a HUGE difference! Here are another few reasons!

* Glass straws don’t leach toxins into your food as you drink.
* Each time you use your glass straw equals one less plastic straw ending up in your landfill.
* One glass straw replaces thousands of plastic straws. (How many times will you use a straw the rest of your life?)
* Using your glass drinking straw adds a feeling of beauty to your day.


This website even includes great traveling cases and a dandy brush to clean your straw. I am so excited for this product. It needs to be known by all especially by all you MONSTER smoothie drinkers!

I want to give you a chance to have one for YOUR monster smoothies! Glass Dharma was kind enough to offer a $25.00 coupon code to use on the Glass Dharma website!

    These straws are such a great idea! I have a lot of guilt when it comes to all the straws and coffee cups I throw away. This might be the remedy!
