Zero Waste Christmas Crackers – Ethical Advent Day 17

Crackers are great fun,  but for a moment of enjoyment, there’s an awful lot of waste.

Here is my solution – my favourite Christmas decoration of all. Stunning, reusable metal crackers. Passed down through my family – I’m not sure for how long exactly – but they are the true zero waste item.

Granted, they don’t give a bang – but that’s all the better if you have a scaredy kitty cat like we do! And you can put whatever gift you want in – no plastic tat that nobody really wants, that’s going to end up in landfill.

I haven’t managed to find a modern metal cracker as yet, but there are some lovely reusable crackers on the market, and you could also try making your own.
