Velo™ Reusable Transfer & Storage Sack

A game-changer for plastic reduction

Helping to eliminate over 2.2 million plastic sacks from Charity Shops

Our commitment to reducing plastic in retail has seen a number of product innovations under the Velo™ brand, the latest being our Velo™ Reusable Transfer & Storage Sack which is a registered design exclusive to Acopia.

This has been trialed and championed by a number of charities to help us bring about meaningful change by reducing plastic usage in charity shops across the UK.
