PET Recycling

Labels, inks and adhesives are all sources of contamination, particularly in PET recycling. That’s why we’ve taken the initiative to develop next-gen technologies that vastly improve package recyclability and promote conservation of PET resources. Recognized by The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), our pressure sensitive and shrink sleeve solutions enhance the recyclability of your package, without compromising performance or aesthetics.

HDPE Recycling

Our GreenLabel™ solutions for HDPE containers comply with the Critical Guidance Protocol established by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR). These labels are compatible with the current recycling system, allowing for correct sortation and releasing from the bottle during the washing process. Most importantly, they allow your labels to make a strong impression and make a difference.

Sorting recycled materials

Recycled content

Many of our standard label and packaging materials are now available with recycled content. Including post-consumer recycled content in your packaging can help reduce the environmental impact of your brand, and help you meet your sustainability targets. Our recycled content solutions offer identical performance and aesthetics as our standard materials, and pass stringent trade association testing and certification.

Reduce your footprint

Looking for an easy place to start? We can help you lessen your plastic consumption by reducing the overall thickness of your label! Most automatic label application equipment can handle tolerances in both facestock and liner— and less weight means less raw materials.
