More about Keep This Cracker...

Re-usable Crackers, an eco-friendly alternative to the standard disposable cracker.

My Story

I am Bea Thackeray designer/inventor of the Re-usable Party Cracker. Never one to shy away from a challenge, I wanted to see if it was possible to make a Party Cracker you can re-use.

With a flash of inspiration and a pile of prototypes later, I launched the first Re-usable Party Crackers in July 2013. Since then I've been busy working on new ideas for Wedding Favours and personalised designs.

I'm proud that the ‘Hellebore’ design was awarded Highly Commended in the GA 'Gift of the Year’ awards. The ‘Mini Favour Gift Box Crackers' were short-listed in the Eco-friendly category.

'Keep This Cracker' Re-usable Crackers are made in the UK. All packaging, promotional material and component parts are sourced from UK manufacturers (with the exception of the snaps).

Feel free to find me on LinkedIn for my full bio. (see the social media links at the bottom of the page).

We have travelled across the UK from Glasgow to Bournemouth attending various fairs and events over the years. I always enjoy meeting customers and hearing feedback. So I was delighted to be invited to the 'Sustainable Christmas Market' at Channel 4 in London. (photo by Dan Maier)
