Vela Bags, Transparent Paper Bags to Replace Polybags

Vela logo

Our paper-based transport bags are the perfect sustainable, peel and seal alternative to single-use plastic poly bags. Keep your garments and other products free of dirt, dust, and moisture during transit. Vela paper bags are transparent enough for manual barcode scanning and feature a full-width adhesive strip and concealed vent holes for easy and efficient packaging.

Vela offers various sustainability benefits compared to single-use poly bags; they are curbside recyclable, FSC® certified, and directly fund ocean research and conservation programs through our “Sea the Difference” initiative.

Made of Paper

Designed to be recycled.

Vela™ paper transport bags are the embodiment of sustainability and functionality. Designed to be recycled, they take a stand against single-use plastic and contribute to the efforts towards a more sustainable planet. Their construction from recyclable materials not only reduces waste but also promotes a circular economy, where resources are used, recycled, and reused to their maximum potential.

Vela bags are FSC® certified and designed to be recycled. It's time to ditch the single-use poly bags for Vela – the paper alternative.

Custom Printing

Custom print your sustainability story.

Vela bags are the perfect canvas to share your brand’s sustainability story with your customers. Our stock bags are minimally designed, allowing space for post-printers to add your messaging right on top.

For larger brands who need transport bags at scale, we offer custom printing (1-color single-sided) and additional custom sizes. Share your story how it was meant to be shared with custom printing.

Sea The Difference

Supporting our oceans through research.

A portion of every Vela bag sold is donated to ocean-friendly organizations Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium and One Ocean Foundation – supporting critical ocean research and conservation programs.

All stock Vela paper bags are pre-printed with our Sea the Difference badge, and we invite brands to include this badge on custom printed Vela bags to show their support of critical ocean research and conservation programs.
