Your beverage labels can make or break your packaging recyclability

Today, packaging recyclability is not just a nice-to-have; it is essential. Our wash-off solutions for PET containers enable the label to float off during the washing process and be collected for recycling. For glass bottles that are crushed and melted for recycling, our labels are designed to come off during the crushing process. Discover all about how to enhance your packaging recyclability with the right beverage label and adhesive choices.
