Compostable stickers and glue for paper bags

Looking for compostable stickers and glue for paper bags

Despite our extensive network, it sometimes happens that none of our partners can provide a solution to an enquiry. One such case occurred when a paper bag manufacturer approached us to enquire about 100% compostable stickers and glue.

Our network includes several compostable and biodegradable adhesive manufacturers, however, the combination of sticker and glue could not be provided. We are, nevertheless, not ready to give up and are continuously looking for a suitable solution. We are open for any suggestions!

Project description, requirements and possible solutions

The increased importance of environmentally friendliness and sustainable waste management calls for innovative solutions, also in the paper bag industry. In this case the solution should be designed to close full paper bags. The requirements tied to the stickers and adhesives include compostability under industrial or domestic compost circumstances and strength to keep the bags closed.

Even though the company originally requested for compostable stickers, other options may be applicable. The point is that whatever the solution may be, it can be used to close compostable paper bags, and keep them closed for several days.The solution could be:

  • Separately supplied compostable labels and pressure sensitive adhesive
  • Compostable stickers which stick thanks to compostable glue
  • Compostable tape (single or double sided)
  • Remoistenable glues made of compostable materials
  • Compostable sealer strip with a liner
  • Other innovative solutions. Please, share, if you have one.
