North West Sustainable Packaging Provider Is Changing The World One Bag At A Time With Sales Up And Single-Use Plastic Down


Green Bell Packaging, a Liverpool-based company that provides fully sustainable packaging options, is celebrating its most successful financial year to date since its launch in 2015.

During the last 12 months, the business has experienced exponential growth, with 10 times more sales secured in 2020 compared to 2019.

Founder of Green Bell Packaging, M Vahid Nagori, credits the company’s success to its innovative product catalogue, comprising a range of 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly products that have attracted clients from corporate giants to start-ups, locally and around the world, having sampled for the likes of Tesco, Dr Martens, Carrefour, Decathlon, Travis Perkins and L’Oréal.

Working alongside companies in sectors such as retail, e-commerce and food and hospitality, the firm attributes growing sales and enquiries to changing attitudes as a result of the pandemic. During ongoing restrictions and lockdowns over the last 12 months, its plastic-free mailing bags have become a must-have product for many.

Vahid said:

“Our business was set up six years ago when we identified a real gap in the market for sustainable packaging. With the popularity of e-commerce services continuing to grow, and the need for packaging options increasing along with it, we saw a huge rise in the use of plastics which are ultimately bad for the planet as a whole - plastic waste is among one of the biggest contributors to the deterioration of our land and marine life, with 79% of it ending up in the ocean or in landfills.

“In the last 12 months, we’ve seen a real shift in the way companies are prioritising sustainability and with businesses across all sectors having changed their services to a more delivery-led approach, we’ve seen more sales of our 100% plastic-free mailing bags. Designed to look and feel like plastic with a number of added benefits, it was made to help combat the issue of plastic waste as we become a society dependent on online orders. Now as people look to return to work and resume ‘normal’ operations, we are seeing more enquiries around our BioBag products as a plastic-free alternative to shopping bags. The big draw for our clients is that they are completely customisable and contribute to a greener planet while being practical too.

“Protecting the planet is a key ethos of the business and a pillar from which it was built and founded. Although there has been an emphasis on recycling in recent years, Green Bell Packaging believe that this alone is not enough, which is why we set up to create solutions that were not only environmentally friendly, but that were affordable, easy to access and genuinely useful. As a company founder, it’s always a great feeling to witness business and sales growth but it’s all the more rewarding to know that our contributions are having a direct, positive effect on the environment. We’ve seen the drive for sustainability gain momentum in recent years and we want to be a part of the change.”

Green Bell Packaging works directly with businesses to offer sustainable alternatives and to showcase the importance of ‘going greener’, and in 2019 met with Liverpool Seafarers Centre to assist them in creating plastic-free solutions for their business including plastic-free bags which are used in its on-site shop. Since then, the business relationship has continued to grow despite obstacles including a global pandemic.

CEO of Liverpool Seafarers Centre John Wilson said:

“We have been working with Green Bell Packaging for around 18 months now and as an organisation, switching to plastic-free packaging is one of many steps that we are taking to become more sustainable. We work every day with people in marine environments and so protecting our seas is a natural instinct for us. So much plastic waste ends up in our oceans and poses threat to marine life and to our seafarers, impacting their day-to-day duties out on the water.

“We are in complete support of the work that Green Bell Packaging are doing to help raise awareness of the damaging impact of plastic and as a neighbouring business to us here in Merseyside, it’s great to be a part of this movement that they’re championing, which demands change locally and globally.

“The products themselves are an excellent solution to regular plastic and look and feel like the real thing, with the added bonus that we can customise them to our brand and our needs as a business.”
