How to recycle EcoEnclose products

First of all, a big THANK YOU to all of you who have chosen to use sustainable packaging. Your ecological efforts really do matter!

We aim for the ultimate in sustainability for our packaging products, but it is also important what happens to them when their useful life is over. We urge everyone to reduce first, reuse if possible, and then recycle. Curbside recycling is standard in all larger cities; however it may be limited in smaller townships. Here is the content and recycling information for our products (dispensers excluded):

Labels and Tape

Material: Varies, typically our adhesive based products have 100% recycled (or renewable) backing and plant-based adhesive. 

Where to Recycle: In almost all cases, labels and tape are used on different types of packaging (mailers or shipping boxes). Packaging should therefore be recycled based on the guidance described above. When material is remelted and/or re-pulped, the adhesives and backing are stripped out of the process.
