Sustainable Labels


Sustainable Labels

To compliment our biodegradable labels, we supply Rock Paper Label sustainable labels – Rock labels made without wood and water pollution.

These sustainable labels come with standard permanent and peelable adhesive.   This material is printable by most printing methods including thermal transfer, though laser printing is not recommended.

Rock Paper Labels

Rock paper labels (also known as Paper from Waste Marble, MableBase, Mineral Paper, Rich Mineral Paper, Sustainable Paper or Eco Paper) are – as the name suggests – made from rock – the ultimate sustainable label material. 

Our rock labels are made from 80% marble – a bi-product of mining waste where the mable dust and offcuts are ground to a fine dust.  The calcium carbonate (marble is calcium carbonate) is mixed with heavy duty polyethylene (HDPE) – again from recycled sources.

Rock paper labels are durable – being waterpoof, tear proof and grease proof.  These labels comply with food safety standards for direct contacts with dry and moist foodstuffs.

Unlike wood paper, Rock Paper doesn’t have a grain.  In many other respects it does resembles wood paper, but with a smoother finish – due to the absence of wood fibres.

Rock paper can be recycled in the Category 2 recycling stream.

Rock paper is available with permanent and peelable adhesive.

Please note, Rock Paper Labels are significantly more expensive than paper or plastic labels.  Take a look at our article on how labels are priced by clicking here.
