Committed to Help Protect Our Environment

When producing packaging the environment needs to be considered more than ever.

Our industry has taken several initiatives on improving the impact that packaging has on the environment and Bell Packaging have gone further still to reduce waste in production and increase recycling after use.

As part of our Wastepack registration, all packaging we produce can include the appropriate material recyclable logo.

We are also continually investigating new materials to meet tomorrows environmental demands.

Retran® and Biodegradeable End Caps

Bell Packaging are now able to offer their exclusive range of retail packaging products in a brand new material containing up to 70% post-consumer plastic waste.

With the use of landfill as the traditional method of disposing of packaging and fully aware of the negative press unfairly labelled at plastic, Bell Packaging have worked hard to develop this exclusive material to enable us to manufacture Retran® products.

As part of Bell Packaging’s continuing commitment to the environment, and in conjunction with our new tube product Retran® which contains post-consumer waste, we are pleased to advise we are now able to supply biodegradable injection moulded end caps.

In the correct conditions the end caps will biodegrade and become some of the soils organic components within a period of 1-5 years which compares favourably to a traditional plastic carrier bag which takes between 20-80 years.
