Green Core labels
STEP BY STEP TO A LOWER FOOTPRINT
There is a worldwide awareness that we should treat our planet more carefully. Reason for VanDerEng to set clear sustainability goals within our Environmental Challenge 2025 program. Objectives with which we want to reduce our CO2 footprint step by step. Over the past two years we have worked intensively on the development of materials that have a lower footprint but retain the same mechanical characteristics.
PROUD OF GREEN CORE
That is why we now proudly present Green Core: the sustainable label variant. The basis of our Green Core products is a plastic film with a recycled core. Mechanically, it contains all the properties of virgin material, but with a significantly lower footprint. In order to be able to print the material properly, we have provided the outsides with the thinnest possible layer of virgin foil. This gives the Green Core products their characteristic light color and a sustainable appearance!
GREEN CORE CORE
For the 150 and 250mu labels, the core of the Green Core films consists of Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) materials: in fact, household waste that is separated according to type. We use PE for the Green Core film. The 400mu Green Core core consists of recycled PP (RPP) from packaging materials from flower auctions and supermarkets.
GREEN CORE PRODUCTS
Green Core is available in 150, 250 and 400mu. Extremely suitable for slot labels, labels and stick-in labels. The color of the Green Core material is light green. Due to the recycled material, this color will vary slightly per production badge.
