One of my favorite green companies is GlassDharma, they make amazing glass straws. If you know me or have read my blog very long you likely know I LOVE my glass straws. I use them all the time and even carry one in my purse. While straws may not seem like a big issue, they are. More than 500 million disposable plastic straws are used in the United States every day! That’s a lot of plastic waste and straws are also a common source of litter.
In honor of Earth Day GlassDharma has been giving away glass straws and you still have the rest of today get your free straw, here is what you have to do. Write a quick 100-200 word essay or make a short 1-3 minute video about why you love glass straws, why you love the idea of reusable straws or why you’d love a glass straw. The first 1,000 entries will receive a free glass straw! And one grand prize winner for each category will win a $100 GlassDharma gift code! Be sure to visit GlassDharma’s website to learn more.
I haven’t had a chance to make a video so I’m going to share a great one from my friend Danielle from It Starts With Me.
