Eco-friendliness We can offer labels that can be recycled or are biodegradable and a carbon neutral paper. We can also offer materials produced at PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified factories. Certified forests are those that have been assessed as being managed sustainably. This means that environmental, social and economic aspects of forest management have been taken into account. (Currently about 9% of the worlds forests are certified.)
Eco-sensitive adhesives We can offer adhesives that are recyclable as well as adhesives that can be cleanly removed from the product along with their facestocks. This allows for container reuse or easy separation during the recycling process.
BPA Free Our thermal direct labelstock is BPA Free. BPA is commonly used as a colour developer in thermal papers, ie; labels, cashier receipts and facsimile paper. Whilst BPA in direct thermal labels is considered by food safety authorities to pose no risk to human health, public speculation over BPA's health effects have prompted Sticky Business to use a BPA free thermal paper grade.
Renewable products We can offer corn based films that are compostible, biodegradable wood pulp based products that are manufactured from sustainable forests, alternative tree-free paper manufactured from natural fibre-based pulp derived from sugar cane waste, bamboo and cotton linters.
Dissolvable We can print on dissolvable papers that will dissolve in warm water. These are matched up with adhesives that will wash away. A great alternative for products that don't need a label that matches the products (its attached to), lifecycle.
Recycling We are constantly reviewing our waste management program to minimise the impact our labels and label production have on the environment.
Specialising in supplying self adhesive labels, Sticky Business Ltd was formed in 1993 by a family with many years experience in the label industry. We are now heading into our third decade and have grown into a highly successful 100% New Zealand owned company.
