Are you looking for environmentally friendly sticker options? Then you have come to the right place. We have an entire sustainable sticker range you can choose from.
But for now, let's have a look at how eco-friendly custom stickers are made, deep dive into the different options and help you find your perfect match.
What are environmentally friendly stickers?
Environmentally friendly stickers are stickers that do not harm the environment in any way, from depleting resources to polluting the air, water or land.
Our environmentally friendly stickers are therefore made from all-natural materials that are sustainably sourced, making these stickers compostable as well as eco-friendly.
Compostable means that you do not need fancy recycling machines to dispose of these stickers. You can simply put them in your food waste bin or at-home compost.
We can offer you two different types of environmentally friendly stickers: eco-friendly stickers and biodegradable paper stickers. We'll have a closer look at these below.
Making environmentally friendly stickers
Environmentally friendly stickers are not only made of natural, sustainable materials, but they also have to be manufactured in a way that does not harm the environment.
To print your stickers, we use a carbon-neutral printed and a UV cured ink that is vegan.
Both the ink and the biodegradable pressure-sensitive adhesive we use do not interfere with the decomposition process of your stickers.
We then package your stickers in eco-friendly packaging, including biodegradable "plastic" bags and compostable cardboard boxes and letters with our very own biodegradable stickers.
Our eco-friendly stickers are the most versatile environmentally friendly sticker option we offer as they can be used outdoors for up to six months.
That is because they are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp that is laminated with a glossy protective coating that protects your stickers from scratches, water, and fading in the sunlight. You can find these eco-friendly stickers in white and clear right here. You can find out more in this article: "What is an eco-friendly sticker?"
These stickers are the closest we can come to the feel, look and functionality of traditional plastic stickers - all while being compostable!
Biodegradable paper stickers
Biodegradable stickers are our paper-based sticker option. They are thicker than eco-friendly stickers, but as they are made from paper, they are not waterproof and should mostly be used indoors.
These beauties are completely wood-free and made from sugarcane fibre, linen and hemp. To keep their natural texture, we do not laminate these stickers, which gives them a great matte finish.
Biodegradable paper stickers are perfect for food packaging, sustainable product labelling or branding for eco-conscious businesses. Find out more about these beauties in our article "What is a biodegradable paper sticker?"
When you think of traditional stickers, you likely think of plastic stickers, for good reason. A vinyl sticker starts out as a plastic-based film. But it can be made from different plastic materials.
Most stickers are made from PVC. PVC is not easily recyclable, which means that these stickers are likely to end up in landfills.
However, our vinyl stickers are made from polypropylene which is also a plastic material, but it is recycle compatible. This makes our vinyl stickers recyclable.
Ready to get your own environmentally friendly custom stickers? Remember, that you can also get each option printed on sticker sheets, making it much easier to peel your recyclable labels.
