Earth Day Image - Bottle Label with a plant on it

Celebrate Earth Day by reducing the use of fossil-based substrates.

As we celebrate Earth Day again we would like to present to you a sustainable alternative to the usual synthetic choices for labelling films. OPP or PE are commonly used as water, wear and tear and weatherproof materials for label production. Now – there are plant-based, renewable alternatives available!

We have experience in using RafBio PE White – a plant-based material that provides a sustainable alternative to fossil-based films for a wide variety of end uses.

On UPM Raflatac website we have found some very useful information:

“RafBio PE White performs just like standard PE film, and its excellent flexibility makes it ideal for the squeezable bottles and contoured containers that are widely used in home and personal care applications.

Part of the RafBio family of bio-based labeling solutions, RafBio PE White and Clear are the ideal choices for customers who are looking for a sustainable film face materials that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions during their life cycle, compared to conventional PE, while still keeping products looking their very best. Made from sugarcane ethanol, the films contain more than 80% renewable plant-based raw material and are recyclable within the same recycling streams as fossil-based PE.

RafBio PE films are combined with our RP37 adhesive for multi-purpose labeling applications. Furthermore, UPM Raflatac’s RafCycle™ program offers significant benefits to label printers and end users by turning waste into valuable resources.”
