John Lewis and Waitrose will stop selling Christmas crackers with plastic toys inside

The John Lewis Partnership, which includes John Lewis and Waitrose, has announced it will stop selling Christmas crackers containing plastic toys.

Instead, the crackers will be filled with toys made from recyclable materials, including metal and paper games.

The retailer has also vowed to remove plastic glitter from all of its own-brand gift wrapping, which includes glitter that might’ve been used to decorate crackers.

The move is removed plastic wrapping from the majority of the greeting cards it sells, which the retailer claims has saved it from using eight tonnes of plastic each year.
