David Leonhardt, has been a glassblower for over ten years. He was doing some work for local glass shops when he noticed that the owner had some glass drinking straws for sale. He had never heard of them before and he was always intrigued by things created from glass. He then recognized that this simple item could become a solution to our society’s  “plastics-problem”.

Now, it is true that  there are much more plastic in our world than just those used to make drinking straws, but keep this in mind  “As of March 2008, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals PER DAY! - How many of those served do you think were given a plastic straw?” And then keep in mind that was just from McDonalds, what about KFC, Wendys, Taco Bell etc etc. I am sure that you get the picture!!

GlassDharma recommends glass instead of plastic.  They state that once these elegant glass drinking straws have graced your lips, you will agree that it is only the natural solution to many current environmental issues.  Drinking from a glass straw also adds an element of luxury to your drinking experience.  They believe that glass drinking straws are not just a fad, but a growing trend and that it will not be long before glass drinking straws will be a normal part of everyday kitchenware in every household.
