We can’t avoid it any longer. Christmas is here, and we’re about to celebrate in style! But before we crack out the Christmas jumpers and play festive tunes non-stop, we wanted to introduce our new WUKA Christmas Crackers- featuring the gift that keeps on giving at this, the most rubbish time of the year…
The most rubbish time of year
Every single year in the UK, we produce at least 30% more rubbish than normal. According to GWP each household throws away 3.5 black bin bags worth of wrapping paper, with 100 million bags of rubbish going to landfill too. £42 MILLION worth of unwanted Christmas presents are sent to landfill each year, and six in ten people say they don’t feel guilty about it either.
And that’s just gifts. What about Christmas crackers? A study conducted on 1100 UK households found that 99% of people threw their Christmas cracker gifts into the bin at the end of the day. It’s anticipated that around 40 MILLION Christmas crackers will be thrown away this year, with the majority of the gifts inside being filled with single-use plastics.
So should Christmas crackers be banned? There's certainly a strong argument in favour of that decision! But rather than ditching this well-loved Christmas tradition, how about we take a more sustainable approach instead? Leave the single-use (or, in some cases, ZERO-use) plastic toys being shipped to your table all the way from China, and go for greener choices instead.
Enter the WUKA Christmas cracker, featuring gifts that keep on giving! Yes, that’s right. We’ve launched our own take on the traditional Christmas cracker, with two festive designs- and in true WUKA style, these crackers will be fun, sustainable and useful. A solid alternative for the usual plastic-filled crackers!
We want to make this Christmas different, giving you the choice of an eco-friendly alternative at a time where overall waste is set to climb higher and higher. It really doesn't have to be the most rubbish time of the year!
