Press Release - Free Glass Straws for Earth Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Free Glass Straws for Earth Day!
GlassDharma – The Original Glass Straw
 
(Ft. Bragg, CA) - April 7th, 2015 – GlassDharma gives away thousands of Free Glass Straws each year, in celebration of Earth Day. This year’s campaign has brought 5000 participants in 5 days! The numbers of participants reached proportions beyond all expectation based on historical figures. This viral offer was attributed to several postings on huge “Free Giveaway” websites. Regrettably, GlassDharma has needed to update their offer for a free straw so that now participants are asked to pay the $3 shipping in the US. The Free Earth Day Straw Project continues in full swing until Earth Day, April 22. A letter has been sent to the participants that have not been shipped their free straws yet explaining a delay in shipment with several options for them to consider.

Make a Difference
One of the options to cover the extra shipping and product expense is GlassDharma’s Indiegogo crowd funding page. GlassDharma is asking for help to raise the funding needed to ship out the 4000 free glass straws that were order in a 12 hour period. Everyone is invited to help by contributing and/or sharing the Indiegogo page.

The Planet Wins, We All Win
The number of participants coming forth for this project is producing a heightened momentum of people learning how single use plastics are harming our environment. Each participant watched a plastic pollution video and took a quiz to get their coupon. GlassDharma staff is determined to honor the free glass straw promotion and keep the business viable simultaneously. The limits that were mistakenly not set forth beforehand allowed a flow of increased numbers for the project to educate so many more!  The continuance of this mission is priority!
