Our Biodegradable Sugarcane Labels



Here at LabelsPlus our Sugarcane waste based biodegradable label material is the most popular material we use for our biodegradable labeling. All we do is add a bit of Hemp to the Sugarcane waste and we have this high quality and environmentally friendly label material

Our Biodegradable labels are certified to EN13432 which is the European standard for industrial compostability


Even the adhesive we use is actually Bovine free and thus Vegan friendly and is also suitable for direct food contact with dry non fatty food stuffs

Our Sugarcane/Hemp mix material is more eco-friendly to produce than normal wood-pulp label paper. It also biodegrades faster. These qualities make it an excellent choice for us to use to produce our biodegradable labels

It is estimated that for every 10 tonnes of sugarcane that is processed, a factory will produce nearly 3 tonnes of waste. This waste would normally be disposed of by treating it as rubbish, dumping it or burning it, which causes extra pollution to enter the atmosphere

Sugarcane reproduces in cycles of less than one year. In comparison, trees for paper production generally take at least 7 to 10 years to reach maturity

Deforestation accounts for approximately 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. By using sugarcane in place of wood pulp we can lower pollution and preserve our remaining and precious forest ecosystems

Our biodegradable labels made from sugarcane waste also require less energy to produce. The waste product has already been harvested and collected as part of the sugar industry processes, therefore it’s already at the factory. Because fewer steps are required, sugarcane is less polluting and less fuel intensive than its wood-based counterpart

Deforestation is one of the great problems we currently face. The vast loss of forests in parts of Asia to support the Palm Oil Industry, increase farm land and for the use of fuel is causing untold harm to Flora and Fauna (especially to our favourite animal The Orang-Utan) 

If you are a manufacturer that does not use Palm Oil in your products why not advertise that fact with our specially designed Palm Oil free label (see below)
