What makes stickers & labels sustainable?
Environmentally sustainable stickers refer to the overall impact on environmental resources. If it cannot be continued indefinitely, then it’s not sustainable.
We will explain the difference between biodegradable, compostable & recyclable in the context of stickers. All of these can be sustainable:
- Biodegradable stickers are capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms and therefore avoiding pollution
- Compostable stickers disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically should happen in around 90 days.
- Recyclable stickers can be processed to make them suitable for reuse, ideally over & over again.
To summarise, biodegradable & compostable stickers are generally made from plant materials whereas recyclable stickers can be made from plastic that can be recycled.
All stickers on this page are both biodegradable and compostable making them amazingly sustainable.
