In today’s world, ecology is becoming one of the most important topics. The seriousness of the situation is added by all research and reports on climate change, unusual and dangerous atmospheric phenomena, and subsequent disappearing forever species of plants and animals.
Ecology is an important part of our work and projects, therefore we have expanded our offer with ECO LABELS. We have plenty of interesting solutions that we would like to share with you and inspire you to consider using eco-friendly materials for your labels:

  1. A slimmed-down label is the first step to reducing many tons of packaging waste per year, and it also allows us to generate savings. Reduced weight papers and films are thinner than their standard equivalents by about 10% – 15%, despite the reduced basis weight, their properties are similar to those of standard materials.
    The range of light materials is quite large:

    • Thermal and thermal transfer papers
    • PP, PE, PET films (also with slimmed-down liners)
    • Silver foils
  2. Ensuring the homogeneity of the entire packaging, which allows us to maximize the recovery of packaging as well as reduce the impact on our environment. The label is always part of some packaging that has a significant impact on recyclability and its course. In this case, we offer solutions such as joining materials:
    • PET bottle + PET label
    • PE / PEHD bottle + PE label
    • Glass packaging – the use of materials with the use of an adhesive that facilitates the separation of the label/weakening of the adhesive on the label/glue “rolling” the label at washing temperature
  3. Use of recycled materials. We continuously strive to minimize our environmental impact by reducing the number of materials used in our new products. Materials that contain 30% to 100% of cellulose obtained from recycling packaging waste can be a good solution here:
    • recycled fiber papers
    • papers and films with recycled fibers obtained from consumers (Post Consumer Recycling) – minimum 30%
    • 99% PET film made of PET flakes recovered in the recycling process of PET bottles
  4. Renewable materials, reduce the negative impact of packaging on the environment. Self-adhesive materials made based on renewable, raw materials can contain up to 80% of natural ingredients. Interesting solutions, in this case, may include:
    • papers with citrus organic waste and recycled fibers
    • papers with wine waste and recycled fibers
    • films from forestry materials, not fossil fuels
    • paper made of 100% grass
    • Biobased films produced with a minimum of 83% of polymers obtained from sugar cane
  5. FSC-certified materials means that the wood the product is made of comes exclusively from FSC-certified forests. The FSC mark on the packaging is important information about the product, although it is limited “only” to obtaining raw material from trees. We can assume that the raw material comes from sustainable forest management, where care is taken for the balance and nature protection
