On the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we still believe every day should be a celebration while taking particular note of the tradition that began in 1970. Eco-friendly printing has been a staple of SixB Labels operations since our early days. 2019's originally posted blog "Why Print Your Labels With FSC-Certified Paper and Water-Based Inks?" explained the reasoning behind our company's use of FSC (Forest Stewardship Certified) paper products and water-soluble inks. It has been a way of providing a cleaner and greener approach to label printing with cost accessibilities.
As technology and capabilities increase so do our eco-friendly label printing techniques. In this post, we will explore more and some newer aspects of this greener approach to printing: the use of biodegradable materials. We look at biodegradable label parts in the form of:
- A newer and more sustainable choice: repulpable adhesive
- Recyclable paper products
- The disposal of water-based inks.
While we dive into this topic below, a short note that SixB Labels is remaining open safely during the current pandemic with more details in our post "We're Here For You" and your business. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
