The modern world is incredibly fast paced, but more people than ever before are concerned about the scope of the impact human activity has had on the environment. Sustainability is a major concern for modern consumers, and they want to do business with companies that share their values. Pursuing greater sustainability in your operation is not just a good way to attract more business to your brand, but also the right thing to do for the environment.
Many companies are looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact of their operations, and you should be as well. One of the areas of your manufacturing processes that may require further review is your current labeling solution. Many different options exist for labeling your products, and some of the eco-friendly options available aren’t as sustainable as they may seem.

Many labels are made with recycled paper, but they aren’t recyclable themselves. While using recycled paper as a labeling material helps repurpose waste paper, it ultimately does not remove the possibility of that label eventually adding to a landfill.
For example, recycled paper made from 100% recycled material may sound like a great labeling option, however the non-recycled pressure sensitive adhesive used may damage the recycling equipment used to process paper products.
One potential solution to this problem that many companies are exploring is 100% compostable labels. Paper is only recyclable a finite number of times and choosing to use compostable labels with compostable adhesive can avoid the problem of using recyclable labeling material to produce non-recyclable labels. While this may seem like an ideal solution, it is possible to go beyond conventional recycling with water soluble labels.
