Plastic on the rocks: Stephen Webster's Last Straw

A personalised silver straw offers the most elegant way to avoid polluting our seas with plastic while making a stylish ecological statement.

Stephen Webster The Last Straw

With the arrival of Stephen Webster’s sterling silver Last Straw, the British jeweller hopes to help raise awareness of the damage done to the seas by the 8.5 billion plastic straws we use a year in the UK alone.

Made of sterling silver known for its anti-bacterial qualities, 10% of the proceeds from the sale of Stephen Webster's Last Straw will go to Plastic Oceans Foundation to support their work preserving our oceans. Price £145 

Taking 200 years to breakdown, plastic straws are the second most prolific item found washed up on beach shore clean-ups around the world. Stephen Webster has teamed up with Plastic Oceans foundation for this project and will donate 10% of all sales of the straws to support its work.

Commenting on the launch, Stephen said: “This initiative is our brand taking a stand for social responsibility. It is well known that I personally have love of all things aquatic and as a consequence, over the years have taken part in several clean ocean and water initiatives. It’s important that no matter how small we play a part in preserving our oceans”.

With his characteristic London sense of humour, Webster offers the ultimate accessory for bar flies and lounge lizards, while reminding us to think about our planet before reaching for yet another plastic straw. And to make sure no straw goes astray, the owner’s name and a serial number is engraved on each one. Make it your last straw by buying your very own for £145.

In the past Stephen Webster has supported other environmental causes including Fairtrade gold, Forevermark diamonds and the RED HIV/AIDS charity.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
