Just when we got some alarming news about the increasing number of plastic in the oceans, Lucky Vitamin is introducing a new brand that can help reducing the plastic waste in our planet: Glass Dharma.
Glass Dharma offers an alternative to eliminate the need for straws made from plastic. Since 2007, the company has been producing glass drinking straws to create world-wide awareness about single use plastics and how damaging plastic straws are to the environment.
A recent report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation launched at the World Economic Forum is warning that there will be more waste plastic in the sea than fish by 2050, unless the industry cleans up its act. In addition, new plastics will consume 20% of all oil production within 35 years, up from an estimated 5% today. Despite the growing demand, just 5% of plastics are recycled effectively, while 40% end up in landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.
Glass Dharma is not only providing more glass straws available but also wants to help educate the public about reducing the amount of plastic straws endangering the environment. The company’s goal is to provide glass straws to at least 2% of the American public. With the U.S. population at about 300 million, this works out to 6 million straws.
