Sip The World. Make a Difference!


GlassDharma- The original glass straw, handmade in the U.S.A. !

The Purpose
Since March of 2007, GlassDharma has been producing glass drinking straws in Fort Bragg, California. The GlassDharma mission is to create world-wide awareness about the damage plastic straws and single-use plastics are to our environment. Glass Straws provide an alternative and eliminate the need for plastic straws.
The goal of the company is to provide glass straws to at least 2% of the American public. With a population over 300 million in the U.S.A, this works out to more than 6 million straws!

The Mission
GlassDharma founder and master lampworker, David Leonhardt, believes in the mission behind his exquisite product line. David explains how Reusing glass straws Reduces the waste in our landfills and the oceans: “My commitment is three-fold – to create the highest quality, most durable glass straws, having the straws be elegant and stylish, and for them to serve an important purpose! As I work with other people in the sustainable living community and educate people about the negative effects of plastic and the positives of glass, I benefit by learning more about living with a greener footprint.”

The Guarantee
The GlassDharma Quality Control department ensures the quality of each and every straw. Offering an unprecedented lifetime guarantee, GlassDharma stands behind their product and promises that if it breaks, it will be replaced. GlassDharma straws are made from borosilicate glass, the safest and strongest glass commercially available; they are even dishwasher and microwave safe!
