Historically, the use of flaming in the plastic bottle manufacturing process ensured that pressure-sensitive and water-based adhesive labels would adhere properly to HDPE, LDPE, and PP bottles. Today, this is not always necessary, depending on the label type you are using.*
Reduce Greenhouse Emissions
When you opt-out of the flaming process, it conserves natural gas. For every five million plastic bottles not flamed, approximately three metric tons of CO2 is eliminated, resulting in hefty savings!** Releasing less CO2 into the atmosphere contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. It is a great way for companies to take positive climate change action and reduce their carbon footprint. Simply put, it a simple way to impact the future of our planet.
Consider this: As consumers become more educated about climate change and more concerned about the environment, it will affect their purchasing decisions. Going forward, they may want to purchase products made with renewable resources.
A Positive Reflection of Your Brand
Increase your brand impression, lower your costs, and contribute to the growing movement to positively affect climate change. The primary function of any plastic packaging is to contain, protect, and identify your products. However, it is also a reflection of your company in the eyes of the consumer. Your customers will feel better knowing that the products they purchase are having a more positive impact on the planet. These decisions can increase your bottom line, improve your brand awareness, and help you sleep better at night.
