Our Commitment to Sustainable Packaging
Sustainable flexible packaging and pressure sensitive label sustainability are built into our business at Label Technology. Not just the way we run our business but also in the sustainable products we offer.
We operate under nine Guiding Principles, one of which directly addresses our responsibilities to the environment. This provides us with a focus for our sustainability efforts long term including pollution prevention, water conservation, energy use, and waste reduction.

If you are researching sustainable flexible packaging options you will find that you have four options: conventional materials from hydrocarbon-based materials, films sourced from renewable materials, single-source films that can be recycled into current recycling streams, and packaging made from certified compostable materials.
Wow – really? Compostable films? Problem solved! Let’s use those materials! Unfortunately, it is not that easy. Change never is. For more information give us a call – we would be happy to provide you with the knowledge we have gained over the last decade. We will help you work towards a solution that meets both your sustainability and cost targets while providing the convenience, shelf-life and protection you are looking for your product’s sustainable and custom flexible packaging.
