New Recyclable Shrink-Sleeve Label Appeals to Brand Owners and Consumers

SKC, a subsidiary of South Korea-based SK Group that produces polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film, has launched a plastic shrink sleeve label that can be recycled along with the PET bottles it decorates — no removal of the shrink sleeve is necessary prior to recycling, and no special recycling equipment is needed.

The results of a recent sustainable packaging survey conducted by SK Group suggest that the shrink sleeve, known as the SKC Ecolabel, comes at a good time for consumers.
