The three biggest misconceptions about HALM

September 17, 2019 4 min read


Everyone knows it, everyone has it, everyone uses it: glass. Whether in the form of a drinking glass, a window glass or a spectacle glass, glass is versatile. We were also impressed by the properties of the material. At the same time, however, there are also doubts about the multifaceted material. In this post, we would like to clear up the three biggest HALM errors once and for all::


Sure, glass is not indestructible. Especially if it is clumsily dropped on a stone floor, it will not miraculously stay intact. Yet:Not all glass is the same.

We want to offer you the best drinking experience and have therefore spared no expense or effort to process the highest quality glass. At the moment, many glass manufacturers choose borosilicate glass, which is not recyclable due to the many different chemicals it contains and a melting point of over 1000 degrees. Ultimately, this glass ends up in the garbage dump and is therefore sustainable and even environmentally harmful..

We therefore made a conscious decision against it and paid attention to sustainability and stability in the production process. The glass used by HALM is 100% recyclable..

After carefully selecting the material, in the next production step it is ensured that the two ends are fused particularly smoothly after being separated. Attention! A flattering mouthfeel inevitable. HALM achieves its final stability primarily through a special process in which it is relaxed several times in a furnace using solar energy. This means that HALM loses its tension and is therefore homogeneous in itself. It is precisely this step that prevents glass splinters from becoming detached from the HALM.n.

It is the reason why HALM does not fall apart into a hundred tiny pieces as soon as it hits the ground. Rather, it bounces happily from the ground back into the air, which avoids bad things. For these reasons, HALM will always be on the podium in the long throw competition with wine, champagne or drinking glasses.

So the next time you use HALM, you don't have to treat it like porcelain. HALM can take a lot, is robust and hard-wearing.



In thePurification of HALM you can take the drinking glass as a model. HALM is also the easiest to clean in the dishwasher. Set up upright in the cutlery basket, a minimum temperature of 56 degrees and between 10-15l ensures that HALM is rinsed through from top to bottom despite the small opening.

This makes our product HACCP-compliant, which means that legal requirements in the food sector are met.

Detailed information on the subject of HACCP is detailed in the article"Everything you need to know about the HACCP concept", Vorest AG)described.

What is particularly advantageous about HALM is that the material-related transparency provides immediate information on whether all impurities have been removed or not. Especially in the catering industry, this means that customers know exactly what they are getting into when using HALM. In contrast to non-transparent alternatives, you have a full perspective and need not be afraid of unpleasant surprises.

In the event that a dishwasher is not available, HALM can be cleaned wonderfully with our plastic-free natural brush. Even stubborn dirt can be removed with it. In regions with very hard water, we advise you to boil HALM with BIO decalcifier every now and then. HALM can withstand temperatures of up to 400 degrees. After that, HALM is sparkling clean again.k.

For normal household use, it is sufficient to rinse HALM through with clear water.



The following principle also applies here:Not all glass is the same. It is of course particularly important that no splinters of glass come off when you drink them, which you might then drink with. To avoid this situation, HALM was designed with a curvature at both ends, which ensures that do not peel off small pieces of glass can. Even if you get to the glass with a tooth or use HALM as a stirrer and glass meets glass, it is impossible to separate small pieces of glass from the rest. When HALM breaks, it's so obvious that you wouldn't want to drink from it anymore.

There are other concerns about children. It is fair to say that children are very inventive and could think of different ways of using the HALM. However, one thing is certain: just like with a drinking glass, at HALM you don't even want to bite into it. Quite the opposite - the ends of HALM are flattering and very pleasant to drink, so that it motivates you to drink more. We therefore recommend HALM for children from 3 years.

You shouldn't let children chew on plastic straws anyway.

The harmful BPA can break away from the plastic and penetrate the body. In addition to cancer and diabetes, the latest studies have shown that BPA even causes chalk teeth. So glass is a far safer alternative for children.

Should HALM break, it should be said: HALM is made of soft glass. This means that the edges are not pointed and uneven, as you know it from a regular broken glass. Rather, the severed parts are pliable, making it almost impossible to injure yourself.



We hope that we were able to remove all doubts and that sustainable sipping is now even more fun!
