What are eco-friendly labels?
Avery Eco-friendly labels are designed to have little or no damaging effect on the environment. At Avery, we are creating eco-friendly labels and recyclable labels that help customers meet their sustainability targets while also reducing the impact of our own manufacturing processes, materials and products.
Avery is extremely proud to offer a wide variety of products that feature eco-friendly attributes, such as recyclable labels. We are also working every day to develop even more sustainable products.
Sustainably sourced labels
Sustainably sourced label materials are produced from verified renewable resources and are often certified by an independent third party. For example, Forest Stewarship Council (FSC) paper comes from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious and economically viable.
Recyclable labels are labels that do not interfere with the recycling of the substrate that the label is adhered. For instance, Environmentally Benign Adhesive (EBA) or Recycling Friendly Adhesive (RCA) are considered recyclable labels because the special adhesives do not clog up screens in the paper recycling process.
Reduce label materials
By using fewer materials we help conserve limited natural resources and capture lower costs. Many of our label constructions are up to 50% thinner than conventional labels. They are also made with less oil, water and energy, and have a smaller carbon footprint.
Labels contain PCW
PCW, or Post Consumer Waste, is waste that is the result of a consumer using an item as intended. When those items are recycled through various recycling streams and used to create new products rather than being sent to a landfill, they are considered a PCW product. PCW can be found in both label facestocks and liner materials.
