Show who you are

The material you use can say a lot about your product or brand identity and often this is not thought about enough. From luxury materials that give a premium look and feel, to those that are more natural and designed to lend an authentic air – we work with a vast array of materials and will always help you select the best choice for your project. If you are looking for a more sustainable solution our FloraECO range of alternative materials can help reduce the amount of raw ‘virgin’ plastics used in your products.

What is FloraECO?

In a world that is rapidly changing, finding alternatives to virgin plastic is important for the industry.
We have a range of exciting materials that provide answers and will perform in the demanding business of plants.

B500

This sturdy fibre based board with a bio coating is the perfect choice if you are looking for a fully biodegradable waterproof material. B500 is FSC certified.

Recyclable

ECO35

Are you looking for an environmentally friendly substrate that is produced from a sustainable source? Then this high-quality biobased material is ideal. It looks like plastic, is not biodegradable and is 100% recyclable.

Recyclable

Recycled Polypropylene

RPP is made from a high percentage of recycled polypropylene, it is very versatile and has similar print characteristics to virgin PP.

Recyclable

Transparent PET

Polyethylene terephthalate is a widely recycled polymer that can be used to support a single polymer approach to packaging.

Recyclable.

Sustainability is crucial and a key driver for us at the Hairy Pot Company and that’s why we look across our whole business to minimise environmental impact as much as possible. We turned to Floramedia to help us find an alternative to plastic plant labels and have recently completed a successful trial of a material from their FloraEco range. B500 performed better than expected for us and as a natural Fibre Based material, which is FSC certified, we know it has been sourced responsibly.

After 19 weeks we are very happy with the results. Although it is biodegradable the board is thick and lasts well for our purpose and the print quality is excellent.

By switching to B500 for our labels we take one further step towards reducing plastic use and will continue to work with companies such as Floramedia who offer informed options and seek out advancements, new materials and products in this continually changing world.

We recommend polystyrene for push-in labels.
The advantage of polystyrene is that it is very stiff, so can be easily pushed into the compost directly.
