Save the Planet & Your Body - Get a Reward! - GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED
If you've read our review on GlassDharma straws you know that we LOVE them. No more plastic straws going into the landfill and no more chemicals leaching into your drink. We know that each one of us can make a difference by using them, but imagine taking it to a whole new level. Imagine restaurants using them!
Consider this: "Awareness of the mounting piles of trash accumulating all over our Planet has spurred a new trend; to rethink the impact of what gets used and what is thrown away. Gratefully, many restaurants and their customers have chosen to re-use. Restaurants might find ways to reward diners that bring their own re-usables with special menu items or special prices. Or the establishments could providing retail space for the purchase of reusable food containers and serve-ware. Furthermore, reusable containers and serve-ware can be included right into the restaurant menu choices! This idea brings a convenient option with an eco-conscious focus. It encourages personal choices to reduce the incident of excessive waste. Adding a reusable glass straw as a beverage upgrade for a special price will promote the reuse of that same straw by the consumer. Likewise, upgrading the size of a beverage to those that bring their own reusable straw will reward and encourage eco-responsibility."
In honor of Earth Day, GlassDharma is motivated to make this difference and they are willing to put FREE glass straws where your lips are! All you have to do is write a letter to your favorite restaurant(s) and suggest ways they might reduce single-use plastic straws. Let them know why you'd love them to consider using GlassDharma straws! Together we CAN make a difference for our planet and our health!
Here are the details:
*Like SaferChoices on Facebook (link at top right)
1) Write and send a letter to a restaurant of your choice -- up to 5 different restaurants for up to 5 free straws.
Note: your letter must be snail mailed, emails don't count. Glass Dharma feels this will have more of an impact to a restaurant as sometime emails get overlooked. It's also best to choose restaurants you frequent (and know they give out straws). While restaurant chains are great, don't forget "neighborhood" restaurants.
2) Copy your letter, including full contact information of the restaurant, into a comment below.
3) Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your letter, including contact info of the restaurant AND your personal contact info so that a free GlassDharma Glass Straw can be mailed to you.
