Eco-Friendly Labels and Stickers

We all need to do our bit for the planet. We have eco-friendly label and sticker options, meaning less damage to the environment. As labels and stickers on products are often disposed of quickly, it is crucial that the materials used to make them have minimal impact on the planet.

We try to be eco-friendly where we can. Our most eco-friendly sticker options come from our paper labels, which are uncoated or gloss and are available in a removable or permanent adhesive.

Eco stickers are perfect for sticker lovers who want to protect the planet. Choose from our impressive range of sustainable self adhesive materials. Click on a link to learn more:

We are on a mission to plant trees and capture carbon!

We wanted to do more than just offer eco-friendly label and sticker options to our customers; we wanted to take it one step further! That's why we have partnered with The Woodland Trust to participate in their Carbon Capture Scheme. 

We feel it is our responsibility to give back where we can and help preserve the wonderful world we live in. This scheme allows us to mitigate the CO2 from the paper we use and donate to the Woodland Trust to plant new native woodland. It's inspiring to know that we are making a difference, and it's all down to simple choices and changes to the paper we use every day!

All the paper base materials available on our website are sourced from FSC-certified suppliers.

Eco Stickers FAQs

What materials are commonly used in making eco-friendly labels?

A paper sticker is a common choice for eco-friendly labels, as most are recyclable. You can find paper labels in a wide range of finishes from textured to glossy. However, an uncoated or brown kraft paper are the most popular options.

Are there any trade-offs in quality or durability with eco-friendly labels?

At Handy Labels, we offer a premium paper range, so our customers do not need to miss out on high print-quality or luxurious-looking labels if they choose an eco-friendly option. However, it is important to note that these materials are not as durable as their vinyl counterparts, as paper stickers are not waterproof and can tear. If you are after a durable labelling solution, we would recommend our waterproof vinyl range.

What's better - Vinyl or Paper?

As vinyl labels are made from a plastic material, they are not considered to be the most environmentally friendly choice as paper labels. However, as they are more durable, they will last for longer, resulting in less waste as you will not need to throw them away and replace them for a long time. Choice is yours!

Are stickers recyclable?

Our stickers are our most environmentally friendly sticker option and can be put into the recycling bin but not the compost bin due to the toner and adhesives used.
