LOCAL NEWS: Local Brewer continues plastic-free drive with plastic free crackers


Hall & Woodhouse have invested in plastic-free Christmas crackers for this year’s festive season.

The company have been working on cutting down on the environmental impact single-use plastic has on the planet for several years now. With the aim of becoming a carbon neutral business, they prevented in excess of two million plastic straws and stirrers going to landfill since 2017 by transitioning to paper straws.

The business has ensured that the Christmas crackers and their content are made from FSC accredited sustainable sources and are fully recyclable. The independent Dorset brewer additionally launched a range of reusable, collapsible stojo coffee cups in 2018, which are available for purchase.

Mark James, director at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “Over the past couple of years, we have made a number of changes to our business to become “greener” and help to reduce our carbon footprint. This ranges from solar panels at our Brewery, to LED lights in our pubs. This is about doing the right thing, and our plastic-free Christmas crackers are another small step in our green journey.”
