Recyclable Labels.

Using recyclable labels in your business can have a number of benefits, both for the environment and for your brand. By choosing labels that are made from recycled materials or are themselves recyclable, you can reduce your business's impact on the planet and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability. Recyclable labels can also help you meet the growing demand for eco-friendly products, which can be a major selling point for environmentally conscious consumers.

Key benefits of recyclable labels

Using recyclable labels can be an effective way to make your products more sustainable by reducing waste and decreasing the use of new resources. While many standard label materials can be recycled, finding a suitable recyclable label can be a challenge due to the varying recycling capabilities across different regions and countries. Additionally, label adhesives and inks can interfere with the recycling process, making it difficult to recycle labels by simply removing them from non-recyclable products.

The ability to find a suitable recyclable label for your product will depend largely on the type of product you have and whether you can find a "recyclable combination." While it's easy to choose a recyclable paper label for a paper box, it may not be feasible for more complex or specialised products.

If recycling is a top priority for your business, it's recommended that you use a label with a special wash-off recycling adhesive. This type of label can be easily washed off the main item by consumers, manufacturers, or recyclers, allowing both the label and item to be recycled in their own material streams.

Free Samples
Matt Paper (wash off adhesive)
This label material is designed with a water-soluble adhesive that quickly reacts when exposed to water, making it easy to remove during recycling. It's also ideal for use on reusable or returnable containers as it allows for quick and effortless washing, unlike standard adhesives.
Recyclable PET (wash off adhesive)
The use of a wash-off adhesive in the label material enables it to separate easily from the items during standard recycling processes, which, in turn, facilitates the production of high-quality recycled polyethylene (rPET).
Polypropylene (PP)
This conventional plastic label material is ideal for various applications where durability is critical and is generally recyclable when adhered to other polypropylene products (known as category 5 plastic).
