Environmentally talking…our stance in a nutshell

Royston Labels is committed to becoming greener as a company and aiming to reduce the impact on the environment through the use of materials and processes that reduce the risk of pollution.

As a business, we comply with all relevant legislation and base our operation on sound environmental policies.

Royston Labels seek to continually develop environmental solutions. These manifest as:
  • Reducing manufacturing waste
  • Implementing greener, more efficient working practices
  • Searching for more environmentally friendly products and printing techniques
  • Including recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and thinner materials within our portfolio
  • Working closely with suppliers who can demonstrate their commitment to the environment 
…and a word or two on PET

PET is a popular plastic package for food and non-food products because of its strength, thermo-stability and transparency. With world population growth, natural resources have come to a limit. This urges companies to look for more sustainable source of PET material.

At Royston Labels, we can offer both clear and opaque label materials that are 100% recyclable, and actually allow the old packaging to be re-manufactured into new bottles. This type of up-cycling promotes sustainability which is recognised throughout the supply chain - from brand owners & packaging designers to raw material suppliers, converters, & consumers.

Sustainability is key and for many brands can offer a significant point of differentiation. Retailers and consumers are both influenced by environmental factors, and more sustainable brands are becoming increasingly more popular.

The films we offer are very thin, and deliver the same quality and clarity as alternative label materials. These labels can be printed and decorated in just the same way as other material choices, so they’re an easy way to make PET packaging recyclable and safely reusable.
