Greenport Fashion Export: Fashionable & Eco-Friendly Bags to the Global Market

Arun Kumar Ghosh, FounderWe have moved on from air to plastic pollution now. Figuratively, there seems to be more plastic than the volume of water in our oceans. Every year people throw away enough plastic to cover up the earth four times. Most of what we throw away in our oceans kills 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals each year. Jute bags have been a good old alternative to plastic bags. Jute or hessian bags have high strength and long life as compared to other bags. Like cotton, jute too is a natural renewable source which is biodegradable and compostable. Jute plants also cleanse the air by consuming the greenhouse CO2. These inexpensive bags can degrade biologically in two years thereby being harmless to the environment. Several forward thinking fashion, apparel and fabric manufacturing firms are doing their bit to reduce the damage that is already done. Based out of Kolkata, Greenport Fashion Export, an ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 & REACH certified company, manufactures different type of bags made up of jute, cotton and juco fabric. From basic promotional bags to bags for shopping, wine, and conference, Greenport offers a plethora of options. In addition to this, Greenport also produces aprons.

All of Greenport's works are done inhouse and this export house controls each and every process through experienced and
talented staffs. Due to the inhouse facility, Greenport is able to minimize its manufacturing cost, which in turn allows the company to offer theclients best price than many other exporters in Kolkata. More so, this jute specialist can dispatch goods very quickly. "Within half an hour a client from Australia, Canada or UK can get a reply to his or her enquires. So time is not a bar for us", says Arun Kumar Ghosh, Founder, Greenport Fashion Export Pvt. Ltd.

Greenport Fashion Export had a humble beginning trying to earn high end orders and clients. After several pricing and sampling adjustments with reputed clients, Greenport secured its first assignment for USD 1000. This paved the way for large orders and now Greenport is taking orders of worth USD 120000. In the 10 years of its business, the firm has not just prospered, but excelled, building great relations with overseas clients, who place regular orders. Greenport doesn't have any MOQ (minimum order quantity) or supply bags at minimum margin. Most of Greenport's promotional bags are priced under USD1. The firm procures jute fabric from Kolkata and cotton from Surat. Greenport takes a minimum 20 days to produce any quantity of orders and a maximum of 30 days for 50000 bags.

Greenport exports its manufactured bags to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, UK, and Polland. The firm is a registered member of Federation of Indian Export Organizations(FIEO), that keeps Greenport updated of the global information as well as different scheme or announcements from the GoI.
