Materials & Application
These labels are created from a matt-white, uncoated, wood-free printing paper which is made from 95% sugarcane fibres and 5% hemp and linen. We understand that in our current climate, companies want to make more environmentally friendly choices across every part of their company, whether it’s simply turning the lights off, saving water, or sending out packages that are shipped using environmentally friendly materials.
What’s more, these labels are purposefully designed with both wine labeling and food packaging in mind, so our customers can rest assured that the entire packaging is biodegradable. If the label were to come into contact with dry foodstuff, this is of no concern due to the material it is made from. This gives you a plethora of options to choose from when using our biodegradable labels for your businesses' needs.
How Biodegradable Labels Are Printed
Our biodegradable stickers are printed using conventional techniques like most of the other labels in our range. Because of the open and textured nature of the face-material, the optimum results come from printing techniques where maximum conformability of the printing plate is produced, for example where flexo and offset are concerned.
Our eco-friendly labels are ideal for businesses or individuals looking for labels that are kinder to the environment. You can use our eco-friendly labels for a number of purposes, including:
As stated previously, these labels are perfect for food products, as they are able to come into contact with foodstuff without contaminating it. This is due to the eco-friendly materials the labels are made from, ensuring they aren’t toxic for humans. Whether you’re a company looking to provide more sustainable, environmentally friendly single-use packaging, or a burgeoning new food company, our labels should work for any application.
These labels are perfect for companies who are transitioning to more biodegradable packaging. Often companies can be dissuaded from using this type of product as it can be exponentially more expensive than regular labels due to the fact they’re made to order, but our biodegradable labels are now permanently in stock, reducing the overall cost.
Our labels could be part of a wider move for your company to spread less of a footprint when selling your products, helping your clients to feel better about the purchasing choices they make.
If you’re trying to become a b-corp company, this could be a step towards this accreditation. Using biodegradable and eco-friendly products show you are making a concerted effort to produce as low a footprint as possible and means there is less chance of your company spreading a high amount of waste.
This is something that can be reviewed when you are providing evidence for your submission but should be something that is brought up.
Keeping in Accordance with FDA Regulations
In accordance with FDA regulations, the adhesive used on these labels is also considered safe to come into direct contact with foodstuff or can be separated by a functional barrier. Because our labels are entirely biodegradable this means they are perfect for manufacturers looking to use only recyclable materials in their products.
To have this claim, it’s important to follow the regulations exactly, as using many different types of materials in packaging can affect the recycling plant’s ability to process it. Rest assured, everything has been done to ensure these labels are safe, biodegradable and in line with all relevant regulations.
