25 Euro cents to the enviornmental organization Plastic Change every time a product from the CHARGEit Care series is sold.
“We see too many brands use sustainability as a tool to sell more products. We would rather sell one product with a high lifespan than sell 100 products that people only buy because it’s labeled ‘sustainable’”.
The CHARGEit Care series is covered in fabric made of 100% reused plastic bottles, and packaging is 100% plastic free.
Packaging in the CHARGEit Care series is made without Plastic and of FSC® certified cardboard.
“We constantly look into new ways of designing our packaging, and what is the most sustainable solution for one product might not be the most sustainable solution for another product. It’s not always straightforward, and we always ask ourselves if there is a better way to do things”
Marketing Director, SACKit
As a manufacturer of electronics we adhere to the Danish Producer Responsibility System, which means that we live up to a set of standards that administer producers’ handling of electrical and electronic equipment and batteries. In addition we are committed to reducing waste in general and promoting reuse whenever possible.
Handling e-waste with GreenMind
In order to reduce our electronic waste we have teamed with GreenMind, who specialize in prolonging the service life of electronic equipment. All defect electronic parts are sent to GreenMind, who repair and then resell them in their own shop with a three-year warranty.
Resale of demo products
We strive to never discard products and to always find a home for used or damaged goods. As an example we sell all demo products used at trade
shows e.g. at a lower price on days like Black Friday. This way we can promote reuse and minimize our waste-related footprint.
“I wish we could say that we are in total control of everything that happens throughout our entire supply chain, but that’s just not the reality. It’s not enough to give suppliers a code of conduct and then expect everything to be peachy keen. We are aware of that, and we will continue to work on improving transparency and push our suppliers to do better”.

Optimizing freight practices
With an international supply chain and customers all over the world, we transport a large amount of goods across long distances. We recognize that international freight transportation is a major contributor to air pollution, which is why we are continuously assessing our freight process and working on ways to reduce emissions related to transportation.
During 2020 we worked together with Danish Transport Optimization in order to streamline transportation throughout our entire supply chain. This includes minimizing air freight, implementing new transport procedures, and minimizing box and order sizes.
The SACKit culture
Our no-BS approach to things also characterizes our work culture, which is open, straightforward and welcoming.
One of the ways in which we foster well-being and job satisfaction is by maintaining a flat organizational structure and an informal work environment. Being a relatively small company allows us to work closely together in an open office space, where everyone can communicate across job titles and functions. At SACKit, everyone is treated equal, and everyone is considered an important part of the company.
We prioritize frequent social events where we can truly get to know each other and bond over things outside of work. These events are often frequented by former SACKit employees, which we see as a testament to the welcoming and easy-going atmosphere that characterizes SACKit as a workplace.
