Our Eco-Friendly Products
At A4Labels, we are always trying to expand the use of eco-friendly labels. Our top two products are ‘Biodegradable Cane-Fibre’ and ‘Recycled Paper’. These are stocked materials available in 24 different sizes for same day dispatch and can be ordered in as little as 20 sheets at a time.
Our latest additions to the A4 Labels eco-friendly portfolio are ‘Biodegradable Grass Paper’ and ‘Matt Transparent Biodegradable Paper’. These products help us expand our eco range to allow a transparent choice away from using plastic as well as a new easily broken down grass label. These are available from our Made-To-Order section with a minimum order quantity of 500 sheets.
You can download spec sheets and extra product information from our Label Materials page.

Label Liner: The Tricky Bit…
One issue that the whole labelling industry has is the difficulty of recycling the release liner on the labels. This is the backing sheet that is left over after you have used the labels and usually ends up in the rubbish bin. This can be recycled, however must be taken to a specialist recycling centre which is out the way and time consuming for most organisations and individuals.
Our current mission we are working on right now is to find a way that we can collect the liner waste from our customers and get it recycled at the correct facility. We are working with local and national specialist recycling facilities as well as courier companies to ensure that this is a possibility for us in the near future.
By doing this we will reduce the amount of liner waste that ends up in landfill, giving you more time to focus on your own day to day jobs while we take care of the recycling!
