Eliminating Waste with PURE Labels

Using PURE Labels in combination with your sustainable packaging helps to eliminate waste and protect the earth’s fossil fuels.

One of the most harmful components of plastic or styrofoam packaging is the petroleum that is used to produce it. Petroleum is a nonrenewable resource that requires new fossil reserves to be extracted continuously. Since fossil fuels take years to form, using plastic for food packaging exhausts the earth of a natural resource. (Source: NRDC)

Environmental Benefits of Pure Labels

One of the problems with food service packaging is that it is used for only a few minutes and then tossed out in the trash. In comparison to biodegradable packaging, other forms of food service containers take 25-100 years to breakdown after they are only used once for a brief period of time. We can lessen the impact of disposable to-go containers by choosing an eco-friendly option,

PURE Labels offer a biodegradable solution that, combined with compostable products such as the food service containers offered by Onyx, does not fill landfills, create unnecessary waste, or harm the environment.

In fact, an article from Inhabitat.com illustrates how biodegradable packaging breaks down over a period of 19 days.
