Pick up these socially conscious, eco-friendly Christmas crackers from local social enterprise Pinehappy

This month, skip the store-bought Christmas crackers and stock up on an eco-friendly, socially conscious alternative instead. Local social enterprise, Pinehappy, offers holiday crackers made with recycled paper, and filled with gifts you’re meant to actually keep and use – as opposed to chucking in the bin as soon as the riddles are all read aloud. Think artisanal soap handmade by victims of human trafficking and handy satin scrunchies. Pinehappy also partners with local NGOs, The Nesbitt Centre and The Pivot Centre, to employ adults with intellectual disabilities, who are all paid a fair wage to assemble these festive table decorations, plus the crackers come in an eco-friendly reusable tote bag. Looking for a fun holiday crafting activity to do with the kids? Pinehappy offers DIY Christmas cracker kits, so you can actually personalise your crackers for each dinner guest. Ready-made crackers cost $275 for six, or $140 for the DIY version.
