Each year, GlassDharma marks this occasion by giving away free Glass Straws!What better way to “teach” the idea of “re-use” than to give an everyday, commonly used item to someone who never thought about their habits of “throwing away” drinking straws after each use.“There are still many people out there who do not realize how many reusable choices there are.It is now easier than ever to replace throw away items with quality reusable products”, remarks Cheryl Newcomb - GlassDharma Public Relations.“Our Company is bound and determined to give away as many as 1000 glass straws! This will be our fourth Earth Day giveaway. We are choosing to invest in the important message of our straws – We have the choice to re-use.”
