There is a growing need to develop sustainable and socially responsible practices in order to protect the Earth for future prosperity. For businesses, this means meeting the economic and functional needs of a company, while also attempting to preserve the environment for the future. This not only serves to give a business peace of mind that they are doing the best they can for the world, it also makes them more attractive to customers. As consumers are becoming more concerned about the consequences of their lifestyle, they’re more likely to invest in products that offer them a more sustainable choice.
Reducing the amount of packaging used, along with using biodegradable and recycled materials is an obvious choice for sustainability. However, don’t forget about your labels. If all the packaging materials used aren’t environmentally friendly, then there’s little point in using them at all. The answer is to use eco-labels to complement your recycled boxes, bags, and envelopes.
Labels can be made in a variety of ways in order to be classed as environmentally friendly. Most commonly, eco-labels are made from either recycled materials or biodegradable materials, or often even both. For example, those made from recycled paper and natural adhesives that will then naturally break down. Similarly, the labels may also be recyclable themselves.
Other forms of eco-label might be made from more sustainable materials than traditional labels. There are many ‘tree-free’ labels available that are instead made from plant-based paper, or film made from corn rather than petroleum. In these cases, the impact on the environment is much less than with traditional labels.
