AM Labels introduces sustainable sugar cane, grass-based labeling materials
AM Labels has added sugar cane and grass-based paper labels to its portfolio to meet consumer demand for environmentally-friendly labeling solutions.
The new sugar cane paper labels are composed of 95 percent sugar cane fibers, with 5 percent made of a mixture of hemp and linen, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional wood-pulp papers.
Sugar cane fibers are a by-product that would traditionally be disposed of.
Wet strength and fungicidal treatments are provided by the material, which is uncoated matte paper. Due to its thick and textured appearance, it can be used for wine, beverage, and food labeling. It is suitable for applications where the entire packaging must be biodegradable, such as fruit and vegetable labeling.
The company uses 70 percent sustainably sourced pulp and 30 percent sun-dried grass fibers in the production of its grass paper labels.
The adhesive is biodegradable and compostable because it has been created with a high percentage of renewable, non-fossil-sourced components. Along with cosmetics and organic goods, the allergen-free, vegan-friendly material is appropriate for artisan food and beverage labeling.
