Crackers and the Environment - Our Eco story...


 

Christmas wouldn't be complete without party crackers, particularly in the UK, where it's estimated that over 100 million are pulled in one festive season! Did you know, 12 million* crackers alone, laid end to end would stretch in a line from the UK to the North Pole?

(*Estimated on a standard cracker length of 34cm.)

We believe environmental concerns should be at the centre of the product design process. We don't just consider how the product will be recycled at the end of it's life, but primarily; what it's made of, where it's made and how it functions.

 

Materials...

Our Gift Box Crackers are made using FSC certified box board (eg. paper from responsible sources).

Packaging...

This is made from recycled paper and reusable plastics.
 Our boxes are made using RPET (70% post consumer waste). Both the bags and boxes are re-sealable and can be used to store away your Crackers for another day.

Made in UK...

We source all the component parts, packaging and promotional materials from UK manufacturers. (The snaps come from a UK based importer as we don't know of anyone that makes them here...yet.) The crackers are assembled and packed in-house.

Function...

'Keep This Cracker' is reusable, unlike standard disposable crackers. The Patented construction allows the user to easily replace the snap without any glue or mess.

Recycling...

Crackers by 'Keep This Cracker' are fully recyclable. They can be taken apart and all the components and packaging easily separated, ready for recycling.
