Label Design to Meet 2025 Sustainability Goals
Presented by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI), and U.S. Plastics Pact
Labels are more than meets the eye. The design of your label can make or break the recyclability of your package and even affect the quality of post-consumer content (PCR).
To meet the design for recyclability requirements of the U.S. Plastics Pact and avoid a "problematic" label construction, your label must meet Preferred status according to the APR Design® Guide for Plastics Recyclability. From the label's coverage to the substrate, ink, and adhesive it's made from, there can be a lot to consider to ensure your label is circular by design.
The good news is, the solutions are already here! Learn how to design a recycling friendly label and the circular label technologies that exist today. This webinar will cover all types of labels for all types of plastic packaging.
Design for 2025 starts today. You're working hard to create a sustainable package – don't let the label hold you back.
