Keep This Cracker
Hello I'm Bea Thackeray, founder and designer at Keep This Cracker, a small business based in Manchester. I design and supply Reusable Christmas Crackers you can pull.
Keep This Cracker is a reusable alternative to disposable crackers. Made of cardboard from sustainable sources, it pulls like a standard cracker, but as it doesn't tear you can put it back together again. To reuse it simply thread a fresh snap through the slots at each end. All products are fully recyclable, the ribbons are made from recycled plastic bottles and the packaging is also reusable and compostable. The crackers come with low-noise ecosnaps designed for those who can't tolerate loud noises and ideal for pet owners too. (Exclusive to Keep This Cracker) But for those who like their crackers with a bang, 'Keep This Cracker' works equally well with standard noisy snaps. These are supplied in packs of 12.
Customers tell me they are still re-using their crackers five years on. What they also love is that the crackers come in minimal packaging, flat-packed and ready to pop into shape and fill with their own gifts.
Keep This Cracker is supplied wholesale across the UK to; zero waste stores, galleries, garden centres, online retailers, as well as through a distributor. The crackers are supplied in bespoke display units which come fully merchandised. The flat-packed packaging is ideal for selling online.
