Earth Matters Christmas Crackers


Earth Matters Christmas Crackers are the way forward to an eco-friendly festive season.  We all love a cracker at the Christmas table but not the non-recyclable waste that accompanies it.  These eco-friendly Christmas crackers are the perfect way to add joy and bond with family and friends. Not only are they beautifully designed, but they actually help the environment.

If you are looking for the perfect eco-friendly gift for the festive season or for your own festive celebrations, look no further.  These eco-friendly Christmas crackers will make sure your decorations truly ‘pop’ out and will be a talking point at the dinner table for sure.  Choose from four different designs:  Olive & Copper, Black or White, Gabi Boy’s illustrations (x2 Christmas tree patterns, x2 leaves patterns and x2 gifts patterns) or Orange and Green Circles and Stars.

Gabi Boy is a self-taught illustrator and qualified high school Life Sciences teacher. After teaching, Gabi and a friend started Pickalilly Kids, a children’s clothing company, where she had the privilege of working in clothing manufacturing, textile design, screen printing and graphic design for 8 years. More recently, Gabi started Hello Jack, a graphic design and illustration business.
