Bell Introduce Reused Ocean Plastic

Potentially one of the most exciting developments in the plastic packaging industry is our ability to access and reprocess post-consumer waste that is seen on beaches, riverbanks and the perimeters of our oceans.

Floating plastic

The problem is that plastic floats. What we don't see is all the other rubbish that is beneath the surface. This includes glass, paperboard and metal cans. The problem is compounded where the country or region does not have waste management infrastructure, collection or recycling facilities.

Social plastic

Waste plastic bottles, bags & containers are collected from beaches and riverbanks by local people who are paid for their services – these are taken to local centres for sorting and the recycling process begins.

Collected plastic

Coastal regions are an increasingly important source of waste plastic. Every year millions of bottles are collected and reprocessed to make plastic containers, bottles and products that can be used and recycled over & over again.

Reused ocean plastic

Ocean Plastic waste is cleaned chipped and broken down into polymer which can be processed back into Retran boxes and tubes.

Reused Ocean Plastics

With the COP26 now behind us, what did the world learn about climate change and what is being done to rectify our path before it’s too late? One thing is for sure, and that is Bell Packaging's commitment to manufacturing products from recycled plastic materials in a driving effort to clean the production of plastic packaging and eradicate it’s harm from the planet.

In 2019, Bell Packaging launched a new type of product packaging, Retran® - a polymer based material containing a minimum of 70% recycled content. 

With the applications for this new type of packaging ranging from pharmaceuticals to food with perfect clarity and full certifications, the product has been hugely adopted by our clients with almost 80% around the world now using this new and exciting material.

There is no excuse for the amount of rubbish that is being discarded into our environment and it’s become the responsibility of businesses to facilitate the move across to sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging.

Bell Packaging is one of the first companies in Europe to endorse and support the collection and recycling of these materials which we are immensely proud of.

If your business is looking to employ the use of eco-friendly packaging, designed to biodegrade quicker whilst recycling plastic pulled from our oceans, please get in touch with our packaging design team and we’ll be more than happy to show you the processes.
