Make A Difference Glass Dharma Earth Day 2013 + GIVEAWAY

Earth Day 2013 is just a few months away and this year's campaign theme "Make A Difference" has already launched. Glass Dharma, the makers of the original glass straw, is determined to indeed make a difference. They are going to be giving away 1000 glass straws this year in hopes that people will help the planet and start to eliminate the use of plastics by using their glass straws instead. If all of you remember they were my very first giveaway I ever hosted when I started up Kathy's Calm To Chaos Life. Over the past year and one half I've used their straws in all sorts of drinks such as cold drinks like  sodas and iced teas, cocktails, and even warm or hot drinks. I'm strange, I like to drink my coffee out of a straw maybe it has something to do with eliminating the coffee stains on my teeth because the coffee doesn't hit the front of my teeth when using a Glass Dharma straw. Glass Dharma straws have never let me down and they have gotten a lot of compliments and attention from anyone who has seen them in my drinks. Below are the straws I received a year and a half ago, they are still in near perfect condition and are used regularly! No wear or tear on them at all... and also very easy to clean!

Just a little bit about Glass Dharma Straws - their straws are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate is the safest and strongest glass commercially available. You can even put them in the dishwasher or use them in a  microwave safely. GlassDharma straws are available in three collections: Simple Elegance, Beautiful Bend, and the color accented Decorative Dots. Offered in many lengths and widths, GlassDharma straws are available individually or in sets. The accessory line includes cleaning brushes and hemp sleeves for carrying your straws on the go. Custom etching services and store display packaging options are the newest purchase options ALL straws come with a lifetime guarantee against breakage. If they break Glass Dharam will replace it for free. With a guaranty like that you know they stand behind their products and it speaks volume for the quality they produce!

Now that I've told you how much I love these glass straws and a little bit about Glass Dharma I will tell you  more about their "Make A Difference" campaign in support of Earth Day coming up.

This Earth Day 2013 Glass Dharma will be giving away 1000 glass straws! Yes, I said 1000! This is Glass Dharma's 5th year giving away straws for Earth Day. They will "ask participants to consider their part in PlanetCare™ and to be willing to "make a difference"." Us, consumers, have the ability to sway things by exercising our purchasing power. Once you've experience using a glass straw you will never want to go back to the plastic ones, which can be toxic, and also pollute our planet filling up landfills. Just think of how many of those little pesky plastic straws you use in one year and multiply that by how many people use them in the world? It truly does ass up.
