Are sustainable stickers and labels waterproof?

No, the material these stickers get printed on is splashproof only. That means it can handle light contact with water. You can find out more about the different levels of waterproofness and which stickers and labels are waterproof here.

What eco-friendly materials do you offer?

We offer seven eco-friendly sticker options:

  • Biodegradable paper
  • White
  • Clear
  • Holographic
  • Glitter
  • Silver
  • Gold

How are eco-friendly metallic materials made?

They are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp and contain no plastics.

We then add a 0.02µ metallised layer that gives it the holographic, glitter, silver or gold appearance.

This layer is so thin that it will not interfere with the compostability of the material and your stickers or labels will completely degrade.

How quickly do these stickers and labels compost?

Within about 12 weeks. Watch a time lapse video of it degrading here.

What are eco-friendly stickers and labels made from?

They are printed on a sustainably sourced wood pulp and contain no plastics. They will completely degrade in the compost.

What are biodegradable paper stickers and labels made from?

Biodegradable paper stickers get printed on a wood-free paper, made from 95% sugarcane fiber byproduct, bagasse, and 5% hemp & linen.

How transparent is this eco-friendly clear material?

Even though it's made from wood pulp, this label is amazingly transparent. For the highest clarity, we recommend keeping your label's shape simple. We think simple circular or rectangular shapes work the best.
