We believe in the magic of circular economy. We use recycled materials to create innovative labeling solutions that help brands deliver sustainable packaging for more responsible consumers. We explore the possibilities of recyclable packaging materials and lead the way towards a future beyond fossils. We know that every bottle, every box and every product matter. The same goes with labeling. Together with our clients we give waste a new life.
Cherish the beauty of recycled materials
Nurture the impact of recycling
The world around us is constantly changing. The growing awareness on the results of the actions we take towards climate and environment is the driving force towards more sustainable consumer behavior. We embrace the ideas of circular design by creating sustainable labeling solutions that help our clients offer more responsible packaging solutions that consumers everywhere now expect, desire and demand.
We offer a wide range of sustainable quality label materials
Increasing the amount of post-consumer recycled content in packaging can sometimes be more challenging than it sounds. But using labels made of recycled plastic or paper is very similar to using any other high-standard labels. Quality, looks, functionality, versality and certifications are comparable.
Products made of materials with recycled content can make a difference. By choosing our recycled content label materials that also carry ISCC and FSC™ certification (FSC C012530) you can support turning plastic waste into sustainable plastic or making the most of precious wood fibres and so help taking care of the world’s forest resources.
From wine bottles to food packaging
We offer a wide range of selection of recycled content label materials made of plastic or paper from home and personal care to durables and industrials to food and wine and beverage packaging. Our label materials are always optimized according to the function of the products.
Wine, spirit and craft beverages
For high quality wine, spirit and craft beverage labels materials play a key role. For these products we recommend sustainable paper labels that come with authentic design options and the possibility to add recycled raw materials on packaging.
Home and personal care
Plastic labels go well with home and personal care packages that typically require resistance to wear and tear. Movement towards sustainability and increased demand for recycled materials is already seen in the global consumer behaviour. Our PCR content plastic label materials such as PP C-PCR, PE PCR and Vanish™ PCR are perfect choices in building responsible brand image.
Both paper and plastic labels work perfectly well with food packaging. PP C-PCR is a solution intended for food packaging labeling that increases the amount of recycled content in packaging. Thanks to chemical recycling of plastic waste, this solution has the same food contact status as the film from virgin origin and is applicable for food packaging labeling. For secondary food packaging and cardboard boxes we recommend Recycled Coat PCR-FSC solution.
The art of plastic recycling: Mechanical or chemical?
There are two good ways to recycle plastic: Mechanical and chemical. Both are needed in the path towards more sustainable future of plastic packaging recycling. The main difference of the two is that while mechanical recycling maintains the polymer structure chemical, recycling breaks it down into more basic building blocks.
Mechanical recycling of plastic:
- Often not usable in primary food labeling applications
- Requires high quality raw materials for high quality products
- Can affect the quality of the material (tiny gels or impurities)
- Simple processing with less emissions and energy usage
- Is the primary technology of plastic recycling
Chemical recycling of plastic:
- Has the same food contact status as the film from virgin origin
- Enables circularity of also low-quality mixed plastic waste
- Is identical in quality and performance to virgin materials
- Limited capacity
- Is complementary technology for mechanical recycling
Our SmartChoice™ portfolio includes films made with both mechanically and chemically recycled materials. Recyclable packaging materials are a vital part of the global circular economy and creating new sustainable products such as PE PCR, Vanish™ PCR and PP C-PCR is in the very core of our company. We believe that ultimately all plastic on this Earth should be recycled.
