Vela bags: the end of
plastic poly bags
Ecology Packaging is super proud to be an exclusive partner with Vela. Vela is a brand motivated by positive environmental impact. They believe sustainable and recyclable paper packaging solutions can replace and prevent poly bags from polluting our planet.
Vela products are manufactured by Seaman Paper, a global leader in lightweight paper and packaging products.
The Vela bag was invented in the garment district of Carpi, Italy. The name ‘Vela’ translates to ‘sail’ in Italian, which represents the relationship between humans and nature working together.
The Vela ring personifies the environment in its most basic forms and is inspired by water ripples, tree rings, and topography. Nature is our greatest source of inspiration and this mark illustrates the legacy and reverberations a single action can create.
The best end-of-life destination for Vela bags is the recycling bin.
A product’s voyage from a factory to a customer is rigorous. Vela bags have the strength to withstand this journey.
Vela bags protect products from humidity, moisture, and dust, while also allowing them to breathe in transit.
Vela bags are transparent enough for visual inspection and manual barcode scanning

Tape & Sticker
We feel strongly that custom printed tapes and stickers are viable products that should be considered in your packaging program. Companies are sealing their boxes with tape so why not show your brand and distinguish your company? Custom printed tapes provide a dual role,sealing a box and advertising your brand, product or message.
Tape and stickers are also great ways to cost effectively customize an unprinted shipping bag or box. Printed tapes can also contain tamper evident messages that can help prevent pilferage.
Ecology works with a superior manufacturer on the East Coast who have been in business since 1977 and have been printing high quality tapes and labels since 1989. They have 12 printing presses that enable them to service our accounts quickly and expertly, whether it’s one case of tape or 10 skids. We can print custom or stock images and messages on carton sealing tapes and labels. Anin-house art department makes the design replication process easy and painless. Their experience and expertise in printing can produce a printed tape or label item that you will be satisfied with, whether it’s a one color or four-color logo.
