We create thoughtfully designed, functional reusable products that allow us to maintain our lifestyle whilst sustaining our planet.
Through our products, marketing and partnerships, we aim to raise awareness of the environmental threats posed by single-use plastics and support worthwhile environmental charities.
The Last Co. is a family design studio based in London. Co-founded by Husband and wife team Matt and Katie and brother in-law Alistair.
Inspired by David Attenborough’s Blue Planet 2, Matt came up with the idea in Spring 2018 during his daily routine of ordering his post-gym smoothie. Over the course of a few weeks, he noticed how often the juice bar removed, brought back and tried to replace their single-use plastic straws with various alternatives like paper straws. None of these seemed to do the job and the bar went back and settled on single-use plastic.
Matt thought there had to be a better solution - that’s when the idea of a portable, stainless steel straw that was convenient, practical and reusable came to him, and the Last Straw® and The Last Co.® were born.
