Christmas is a time to be jolly, and for many families Christmas crackers are a key part of the festive season.
However eco-group BusinessWaste this week called for a ban on crackers and shiny wrapping paper as they create an “unnecessary waste” of money, resources and energy and claims consumers often abandon their “good recycling habits” on the big day.
Earlier this year, John Lewis and Waitrose said they would stop selling Christmas crackers containing plastic toys in a bid to reduce plastic usage.
So we are asking: do you think Christmas crackers should be banned?
