Many of our customers ask about recycled paper stock. We offer several options made from 30% post-consumer fiber,tree-free stock made from bamboo, bagasse, cotton linters, and even Kona Paper, which is made from used burlap coffee bags. However, using recycled paper stock may not suit your brand or your budget.
That’s okay though, you can still do your part in the sustainable packaging movement. We offer a few other options for you to consider:
- Water-based inks with limited VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
- Sustainable Shrink Sleeves, Multi-packs and Neck Bands: EarthFirst® PLA is made from corn, it’s 100% compostable, shrinks at a lower temperature and the plastic is made from 100% annually renewable plant resources.
- Avery Dennison CleanFlake™ technology: 560 million PET bottles are wasted every year in the recycling process, largely due to incompatible label materials. CleanFlake™ is a water-based, recyclable adhesive that cleanly separates during the PET Plastic recycling process resulting in pure PET flakes, the conservation of virgin PET resources, and less landfill waste
- Flexible Packaging – Did you know that flexible packaging is a great environmental choice because it uses fewer resources, generates fewer emissions and creates less waste? Shipping the products also requires less fuel than heavy glass bottles or metal cans, which reduces the carbon footprint.
