In a groundbreaking development for the packaging industry, RGS Labels has unveiled a New Wave paper label material – a true game-changer in the realm of sustainable labelling solutions. This innovative product marks a pivotal moment, as it becomes the world’s first RecyClass certified paper label for rigid HDPE and PP packaging.

Breaking New Ground in Recycling Compatibility

The New Wave paper label material has achieved an unprecedented feat by earning the coveted RecyClass recognition for its compatibility with both rigid HDPE and PP packaging recycling streams.

By integrating with existing recycling infrastructures, the New Wave eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming label removal processes, streamlining the recycling journey for plastic packaging. This breakthrough not only enhances the efficiency of recycling operations but also promotes a circular economy by ensuring that valuable resources remain in the loop for longer.

Versatility Meets Sustainability

Designed with versatility in mind, the New Wave paper label material is suitable for a wide range of applications in the home and personal care sectors, where premium resistance to moisture is a critical requirement. This versatility ensures that brands can embrace sustainable labelling solutions without compromising on performance or aesthetics.

By offering a viable alternative to traditional labelling materials, the New Wave empowers businesses to make informed choices that align with their sustainability goals while meeting the demands of their customers.

A Tidal Shift in Plastic Packaging

The launch of the New Wave paper label material represents a tidal shift in the plastic packaging industry, signalling a paradigm shift towards more sustainable practices. As consumers become increasingly conscious of their environmental impact, brands that prioritise eco-friendly solutions will undoubtedly gain a competitive edge in the market.

By embracing the New Wave, companies can not only contribute to a cleaner and greener future but also position themselves as industry leaders in sustainable packaging solutions. This innovative product serves as a testament to the power of collaboration, innovation, and a shared commitment to protecting our planet for generations to come.
