Sustainability

l2Sustainable Efforts

We believe it is our duty to strategies to reduce our ecological footprint. Labeltronix is committed to operating our business with sustainable awareness and action for a better, cleaner and healthier tomorrow.

Our Headquarters

When Labeltronix moved into its new headquarters in 2011, we built a state-of-the-art facility with energy efficiency as a fundamental requirement. To reduce our carbon footprint, we installed low-energy lighting, insulation that reduces energy usage, and energy-efficient air conditioning units. Most office areas are equipped with motion-sensor lighting, which reduces the amount of wasted electricity. Labeltronix promotes electronic files striving for a “paperless” workflow. Whatever paper is generated or received in the course of doing business is eventually sent to a shred-and-recycle company. Our employees also recycle their aluminum and plastic containers.

Our Manufacturing

Our unique process, Lean Labelileafng®, was developed with the intention of reducing our carbon footprint–from the way we print our labels to the way we package and ship them out. Lean Labeling incorporates waste reduction in both our manufacturing process and how we eliminate waste for our customers.

Our Printing

We utilize eco-friendly printing methods – Digital offset printing and UV Flexo printing.

Digital offset printing is eco-friendly because:

  • No water is needed.
  • All ink consumables eliminate press waste.
  • Solid waste is reduced.
  • Make-ready waste is virtually eliminated.
  • Ink canisters are recycled.
  • Offering eco-friendly material, both uncoated and coated paper, which are Forest Service Council and Rainforest Alliance certified.

UV Flexo printing also has environmental advantages, including:

  • Solvent-free inks are used, eliminating VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from the drying/curing process.
  • Ink is activated by UV light; the ink is 100% reusable, resulting in very little treatable waste.
  • Offering eco-friendly material, both uncoated and coated paper, which are Forest Service Council and Rainforest Alliance certified.

Our Recycling

rec100We offer a recycling program to our customers so they can return their plastic cores, plastic core plus, and cardboard box dividers to us, and we reuse them.

We recycle all cardboard boxes and pallets that come into our facility.
