Eco-Friendly Label Options for Your Business 


When discussing custom labels, it is common to focus only on what is printed – the branding, the logo, and the information presented. Equally important, however, is the type of label material, and the impact custom label materials have on the environment.

Eco-friendly labels, like recyclable Kraft paper labels, for example, are no longer a specialty item. They are quickly becoming the standard for businesses in every industry. Here we will discuss not only the importance of sustainable custom labels and eco-friendly label solutions but also why switching to sustainable packaging is good for your business long term.

Eco-Friendly Label Materials 

There are several options for green labels when looking at custom label printing. Sustainable label materials have come a long way since the days when plastic was the primary option.

  • Kraft Paper is a sustainable and eco-friendly label material, made from 100% recycled and 50% post-consumer content.
  • Semi-Gloss paper Labels use a USDA Certified Biobased Product adhesive that contains 45% renewable content. They meet strict FDA standards for contact with food and feature a permanent adhesive that reduces waste by preventing the label from falling off.
  • Metallic Foil Labels give a silver, gold, or iridescent shine to your packaging. They use a strong adhesive that is a USDA-Certified Biobased Product, containing as much as 45% renewable content.
  • Clear BOPP Labels are completely transparent and made from recyclable #5 polypropylene to ensure that recyclable containers aren’t compromised by non-recyclable labels

Benefits of Sustainable Labels 

The benefits of investing in eco-friendly labels are manifold. The advantages of using sustainable labels for businesses extend beyond the quality of the label itself, including brand image improvement and showing commitment to environmental responsibility.

  • Durability and Performance - Eco-friendly labels are durable, withstanding smudges, moisture, temperature, and other environmental conditions while meeting industry standards for sustainability.
  • Customization – Sustainable labels are made to suit your unique business needs. Choose from various custom shapes, sizes, and designs to set your brand apart.
  • High-Resolution – You never have to worry about compromising quality by using green labels. Even small Images and text will be clear, legible, and easy to read, even in warm or cold temperatures, or when they encounter foodstuffs and moisture.
  • Positive Branding – The right label material can evoke a reaction in existing and potential customers as much as what is printed upon it.  Kraft paper labels, as mentioned above, are not only recyclable but offer a rustic, wholesome feel to show your customers you’re committed to quality and sustainability.
