Going “eco” can be deadly

Death by eco-friendly straws. Terminal end via “e-scooters.” I wonder when someone croaks because of reusable shopping bags. It’s just a matter of time. Heck, a female “James Bond” is one of the warning signs.

Eco straws apparently help the enivronment.

A retired jockey died when she fell onto an eco-friendly metal drinking straw that went through her eye and impaled her brain, an inquest heard today.

Elena Struthers-Gardner, 60, suffered horrific brain injuries after the freak accident at her home in Broadstone in Poole, Dorset on November 22.

She was carrying a mason jar glass with a screw-top lid when she collapsed, with the 10in stainless steel straw entering her left eye socket and piercing her brain.

Today a coroner said metal drinking straws should never be used with a lid that fixes them in place, and warned that ‘great care should be taken’ while using them.

She went out on top at least.

She is believed to be the victim of a crash involving an “eco” electric scooter and lorry in Battersea.

A tribute on the 35-year-old’s Instagram page described her as someone who “touched so many lives”.

She had more than 340,000 YouTube subscribers to her channel and a big presence on Twitter and Instagram.

Her channel offered health and lifestyle advice, and she founded the YouTube show ’10 Reasons Why’. She had interviewed A-listers such as Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne.

Hartridge had also fronted a 4OD documentary on turning 30.

A statement on Hartridge’s Instagram page said: “Emily was involved in an accident yesterday and passed away.

“We all loved her to bits and she will never be forgotten.”

Maybe she should have walked.
