Working with our manufacturers we rolled this out across our new and popular products. From multi tools, to pumps and sunglasses. All of our packaging is using cardboard which can be easily recycled so you can do your bit for the environment and also help us reduce the need for plastic.
For clothing products such as socks, we have packaged our products in re-sealable bags so once you have removed the socks, you can also use this as storage for anything else you wish and will easily re-seal airtight.
" Cycling is a great sport to keep fit, but also a great mode of green transport when commuting which doesn't harm the environment.We found that since the pandemic, more and more people have taken up cycling as an alternative mode of transport.
Taking this and feedback onboard from customers who care about their plastic waste, we have now developed a collection of products using packaging that can be easily recycled or re-used and this will be rolled out through our entire collection of VeloChampion products in 2021. "
