Keep the noise down this Bonfire Night with the help of these low-noise fireworks…
Just a few weeks ago, Sainsbury's announced that it would no longer be selling fireworks, following a yearly review of all their products.
Though the supermarket giant didn't specify why that decision was made, people have been praising the bold move from Sainsbury's saying it will help pets, children and adults who suffer from phobias of fireworks.
Last year, a petition calling for a ban on fireworks, due to their safety risks and negative effects on people and animals, received over 300,000 signatures, leading a lot of people to seek alternatives to fireworks for Bonfire Night and Diwali.
In a bid to help adults continue the fun of fireworks but also reduce their decibels, several supermarkets are selling special low-noise fireworks packs.
Take a look and see where you can pick up a pack of low-noise fireworks today!
