Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Lightning Labels, custom label and sticker printing leader, can help companies prepare eco-friendly product packaging in time for Earth Day on April 22. Through the use of eco-friendly stickers and labels, companies can demonstrate support for green initiatives.
"Lightning Labels has a commitment to supporting environmentally sustainable initiatives by providing materials that assist companies with these missions," said AnneMarie Campbell, Business Development Manager at Lightning Labels. "From energy-saving practices to label materials, Lightning Labels supports businesses with environmentally- friendly processes and materials."
To raise awareness for the environment, companies that produce green products can call attention to Earth Day festivities, as well as print information to increase awareness of environmentally-conscious behaviors, such as recycling.
Lightning Labels Provides Many Eco-friendly Labeling Options
For brands that support environmental initiatives, it's important to use eco-friendly labeling options. Every part of the product reflects on the company that makes it, including the packaging. For this reason, demonstrating thorough commitment to the Earth requires the use of green materials. Lightning Labels provides a selection of labeling options that are a good choice for companies promoting Earth Day. EarthFirst PLA provides a more sustainable alternative to BOPP. This material is a biopolymer made from corn instead of petrochemicals. Vellum and Kraft are both fully recyclable and made from post-consumer waste materials. When using eco-friendly packaging, it's also a good idea to include a note on product labels that indicates where the labeling materials came from, as this may interest consumers. Also provide tips for recycling or reusing the containers.
Eco-friendly packaging isn't just for companies that have a green commitment already in place. Other brands can use Earth Day as an opportunity to embrace environmentally conscious practices. Whether these initiatives are temporary or long-lasting, companies can always take a moment to educate staff and consumers about ecological issues.
Make Informational Product Packaging for Earth Day
To bring greater awareness to environmental issues, companies can make special product packaging for Earth Day that provides information about the event. Using label space to talk about environmental concerns provides additional evidence that companies truly support green initiatives. Include a brief history of Earth Day, or simply note that the day is coming up, and use the space to talk about ways consumers can reduce their negative impact on the environment. There are many resources that can be found on the Environmental Protection Agency's Earth Day website.
