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, and if you are looking for labels to use on products where the packaging must be entirely biodegradable these ones are ideal. They are also suitable for products where contact with dry foodstuff (either direct or indirect) is required as the seams or edges of our eco-friendly labels can safely come into contact with any foodstuff, making them ideal for food packaging. 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 is 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.
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.
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. These labels are purposefully designed with wine labelling and food packaging in mind, so our customers can rest assured that the entire packaging is biodegradable or the if label might come into contact with dry foodstuff this is not a concern.
