Sustainability Series: Reduced Packaging and Label Materials

In the last few weeks, we’ve discussed a few ways we can help you make more sustainable packaging choices. As a company truly committed to sustainable practices and providing our customers with a variety of options to reach their sustainability goals, Inovar Packaging Group offers several different options to suit companies with a variety of needs.

We’ve touched on how to make your packaging recyclable and different materials options created from recycled materials. Today we’ll talk about reducing your impact on the environment by cutting back on your material usage with reduced packaging.

Choosing Reduced Packaging and Labeling Options

Choosing label and packaging options that reduce the waste associated with traditional packaging can be one high-impact way of attaining more sustainable business practices. Besides choosing primary reduced packaging that uses less material, we can help you reduce your packaging with thinner label liners for pressure-sensitive labels.

All labels come on a liner that is discarded after label application. We are currently working to find even more creative ways of reducing the waste associated with traditional labels, including the possibility of beginning a liner recycling program for our customers. Right now, however, we can help reduce the amount of label waste by substituting a thinner liner for some label materials. Using a thinner liner for your labels reduces your environmental impact of course, but it also can provide up to 15% more labels per roll.

Material Substitutions for Reduced Packaging

Some of the reduced packaging and label materials for which we can substitute a thinner liner include clear, white, and metalized BOPP, and paper. The liner options that can be substituted are paper, PVC, or PLA materials.

As with any sustainable label solution, it’s important to note that we are always working toward more and better options, and there are many factors we take into consideration when we build a custom sustainable label for you; when it comes to reducing your label liner, your application method is going to play a big role in the feasibility of this option. The best way to get started is to contact us directly so we can help you find the best sustainable option for your brand.
