So your company probably heard a lot lately about “going green”. But what does that exactly mean? “Green” means having a minimal negative impact on the environment and maximum conservation of resources and energy efficiency. If you’re looking to make the shift to custom eco-friendly labels, call us at 1-800-475-2235 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to start today.
People often use recycled, recyclable, and renewable interchangeably but there are several key differences when it comes to eco-friendly labels. Consolidated Label Co. does not have access to every type listed and there are often minimum purchase requirements when using these specialty materials. In short, your service rep will tell you the availability of these types of materials and if they fit your project.
Recycled means the label stock contains materials recycled from the manufacturing process or post-consumer waste.
Recyclable means the label safely goes through the recycling process. (Please note that most sensitive labels do not recycle due to the adhesive unless they use a “recycling compatible adhesive” which is a specialty product.)
Renewable means the label stock comes from resources that replenish as quickly as possible. Examples of renewable materials include corn, sugar cane, and bamboo.
If you are looking for something even more “green” than the FSC label materials, we can order other specialty materials (please note that specialty materials may have minimum quantity order requirements from the manufacturer). Most of our customers who buy eco-friendly labels use one of the following products:
Tree-free label stock is a white paper-like stock made from bamboo pulp, sugar cane, and cotton lint. Tree-free label stock provides a smooth print surface and is ideal for specialty food and wine labels.
FSC certified papers come in a variety of styles to suit different markets and applications. Whether you’re looking for a high-end look or a cost-effective alternative, we have you covered.
As a graphic designer for over 15+ years I have never had such a quality product produced as Consolidate Label was able to deliver! Totally impressed!
Best label printing company that I've worked with. In fact, they stand out from most of my suppliers as extremely prompt, reliable, and they do high-quality work. I can't recommend Consolidated enough.”
