The Little Green Cracker Company
We’re delighted to introduce you to The Little Green Cracker Company; formed in 2020 and producing eco Christmas crackers for retailers and bespoke designs for major brands, including Selfridges and the Westmorland Farm group.
The Little Green Cracker Company was born after the founder, Caroline Compton-McPherson, found herself uninspired by the eco crackers available: ‘I searched for eco-Christmas crackers and found most companies were “greenwashing” or the products were dull as ditch-water; “eco” doesn’t have to mean brown paper packaging – it’s Christmas and people want a fun, luxury product on their table.’
A Which Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for 2021 and shortlisted for a prestigious 2021 P.E.A. (People. Environment. Achievement.) award, the company produces luxury, traditional Christmas and Occasion crackers; its eco credentials are at the heart of everything they do and the company constantly strives for innovative ways to do better. Handmade in North Devon, the range is designed to be taken from the table to the recycling bin. Made from 100% recycled and recyclable card, and tied using sustainable ribbon options, the crackers also feature gifts sourced from UK companies that will genuinely be used – no plastic; no tat. In addition to impeccable eco credentials, the company also has an ethical focus, with employees earning above minimum and living wage, using local suppliers and working equitably with all partner companies.
