LABELPAC Implements Paper PLU Labels and Waste Liners; Sam Sleiman Shares
WINDSOR, ONTARIO, CANADA - Working to better provide the industry with sustainable solutions, LABELPAC uses all paper label materials for its PLU labels. The Canadian-based company wants to offer growers a solid solution in the wake of ever-changing anti-waste laws at home and abroad.
“Most companies either use plastic for labels and waste liners and others use paper for labels, but also use a plastic waste liner which is not environmentally safe,” stated Sam Sleiman, President. “LABELPAC has managed to keep both materials paper, which offers an environmentally safe solution.”
The company noted France’s passage of a law that becomes effective January 2022, which will ban all plastic stickers unless said stickers have been manufactured with home compostable materials or paper.
According to a release, LABELPAC is successfully eliminating all plastic in its PLU label manufacturing.
“Our waste liners are also paper—we use ZERO PLASTIC! We have been offering this for many years anticipating what the future has now proven to us. Any plastic is inferior to a long-term solution and cannot be compared to using paper,” continued Sleiman.
