What’s the deal with Label Release Liner?
What is the Recyclable Enviroliner?
Our Patented Recyclable EnviroLiner, is the only label release liner made of 100% post-consumer waste that can be recycled in local recycling facilities. With the rise in demand for more sustainable solutions, our Recyclable Enviroliner solves the waste issue that has plagued the label industry since the beginning.
With brand managers and agencies under pressure to find more sustainable solutions for their packaging, one area they overlook is their labels. They have never considered the amount of waste the backing of a label contributes to our landfills. We now offer a solution to this problem with our release liner that can be recycled.
We at Labelcraft believe this is such a big deal for the label industry that we have taken the extensive steps to become FSC certified through the RainForest Alliance.
Our release liner in made of 100% Post Consumer Recycled paper from Rolland Sustana Group and we use Recycling Compatible Adhesive (RCA). Labelcraft takes the necessary steps to assure we use materials that are responsible sourced where ever possible.
