Stickers can be sustainable.
With a growing trend towards sustainability and combating climate change, it is essential that stickers play their part.
Brands need to portray their identity using stickers, so we’re here to make sure this doesn’t impact the environment.
At Sticker it, we’re constantly looking to make stickers & the manufacturing process more efficient and sustainable than ever.
The most environmentally-friendly sticker we’ve found uses a material made from 95% sugarcane fibres and 5% of hemp and linen.
These stickers are 100% biodegradable and will decompose completely.
They’re splashproof and have a matte finish. This biodegradable ‘paper’ is printed in full colour with an HP Indigo that uses no solvents in its ink, so it doesn't release harmful gasses.
We use this material to make our biodegradable paper stickers.
If you want to understand this material in detail, see the Biodegradable Paper Datasheet.
There are also stickers made from plastic that can be recycled along with the packaging they’re applied to.
PET (polyester) and PP (polypropylene) stickers are both widely recyclable, which makes them extensively used in food & drinks packaging.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is also widely used however isn’t quite as easy to recycle. Many manufacturers are moving to PVC products, and Sticker it is also doing exactly this, so reduce the impact of PVCs on the environment.

Here are some ideas but it’s certainly not extensive:
Sustainable food packaging
Drinks bottle labelling, including wine bottles
General logo and branding stickers
Jars & other food products
Shipping box branding
Biodegradable material has a medium-strength adhesive making them suitable for a whole range of applications. It’s suitable for indoor use, is waterproof and safe for contact with food. Find out more about these stickers by reading our post “Biodegradable paper stickers: All you need to know“.
