About Hub Labels Sustainability Initiatives
In 2019 Hub Labels went 100% landfill free. This was a big accomplishment that took years of hard work and planning company wide. The plan now is to keep moving forward and find new ways to innovate and improve our environmental sustainability as a company.
Right now those efforts include using environmentally responsible materials and manufacturing procedures like printing with eco-friendly water-based and UV inks, recycling inks, liner waste, and water, and repurposing corrugated cardboard for packaging purposes.
We also have innovative packaging technologies that we are avidly trying to pioneer, such as linerless labels as a packaging solution which reduces overall liner waste by 50%. Even smaller initiatives such as using a chevy volt as our company car are important to us. Our finger is on pulse with everything regarding sustainability. It is an exciting time to work with Hub Labels as the packaging industry hurdles in to a more sustainable future.
