SUSTAINABILITY OF SHRINK SLEEVES

There are multiple solutions to improve the sustainability of shrink sleeves.
 
  • Perforated edges provide ease of shrink sleeve removal from the container to aid in recycling and also help to hide imperfections on recycled material.
  • Washable solutions for inks to improve recyclability.
  • Mono material PET bottles and sleeves to improve recyclability.
  • New materials that are more bio-degradable and can go to the landfill such as PET bottles with no glycol.
