A LIVERPOOL business has launched the UK’s first plastic free mailing bags.
The bags use unique technology to replicate the look, feel and durability of regular plastic.
The sustainable product from Green Bell Packaging has been created using a 100% plastic-free polymer compound, manufactured from renewable natural materials and vegetable oil derivatives.. The bag is designed to degrade naturally, providing an eco-safe solution to help combat the increasing concerns around plastic waste.
Founder Vahid Nagori said: “We are really excited to be able to launch our plastic-free mailing bags after a lot of research and development into this new technology, which is similar in composition to our best-selling BioBags; a plastic-free solution to regular plastic bags. After such success with this particular product, we were keen to develop our range and identified a gap in the market when it came to mailing bags. With online retailing and e-commerce experiencing a huge boom in recent months, comes an increased use in plastic bags to deliver goods through the post.”
Production Head at Green Bell Packaging Shradha Rungta said: “Plastics can take thousands of years to decompose and landfills are a major contributor to environmental and aquatic issues across the globe. Green Bell Packaging has a goal to protect the world we live in with products that are designed, manufactured, and delivered with care and consideration for the planet. Our innovative new mailing bags took over a year in production to achieve the look, feel and usability that we desired. Our product differs in that it does not need an industrial facility to decompose, and instead, customers will see it begin to break down naturally in a matter of weeks.”
