BioLabels.co.uk specialise in the supply of Biodegradable Labels on A4 sheets that are made from Bagasse Cane Fibre.
In this article, we are going to look at why bagasse labels and stickers are an excellent choice for your products, packaging and brand:
Bagasse Biodegradable Labels Are Eco-friendly
Unlike paper, Bagasse doesn’t involve chopping down trees. Deforestation accounts for 20 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. By using sugar cane in place of wood pulp, we can lower pollution and preserve forest ecosystems. Bagasse causes little or no environmental impact.
Labels made from bagasse require less energy to produce. The waste product has been harvested and collected as part of the sugar industry processes. As fewer steps are needed, sugarcane is less polluting and less fuel intensive than its wood-based alternative. Bagasse is already available in abundance as an agricultural waste product. For every 10 tonnes of sugarcane crushed, a factory will produce nearly 3 tonnes of wet bagasse. Since the waste product already exists, it makes sense to use it in label material production.
Bagasse Biodegradable Labels Are 100% natural
No additional additives or chemicals are needed to whiten or strengthen it. Bagasse makes naturally beautiful labels and stickers to enhance the naturally beautiful features and characteristics of your product.
Bagasse Labels Are Sustainable
Bagasse is mostly a by product of sugar production, although it can can also be produced from bamboo, wheat and straw. Sugar cane is a renewable, eco-friendly source as it reproduces in cycles of less than one year. In comparison, trees for paper production generally take 7 to 10 years to reach maturity.
Bagasse Labels Are Strong
Bagasse cane fibre offers great strength and durability reducing the likelihood of labels ripping and tearing. Labels adhere well with an acrylic based, biodegradable adhesive with good initial tack and adhesion, on a wide variety of substrates.
Bagasse Labels Are Food Safe
These environmentally-friendly labels are designed with wine labelling and food packaging in mind, so you can rest assured that the entire packaging is biodegradable, or the if label might come into contact with dry foodstuff this is not a concern.
Bagasse Labels Are Suitable For Wine Bottles
Bagasse is good for wine bottle labels and other drinks that will go into a fridge or ice bucket. It is specifically designed for wine labelling where the complete packaging should be biodegradable.
Bagasse Labels Have Good Heat Resistance
Bagasse is durable with a high heat tolerance of up to 180 degrees C. This makes it suitable for hot food product labels, and is safe for use in a microwave.
Complies with EN 13432
Bagasse cane fibre complies with the strict codes of standard operated in Europe.
Complies with 1935/2004/EC
This means bagasse labels are suitable for direct contact with food. Use Bagasse stickers to safely label fruit, vegetables and other food stuff.
