Sustainability Benefits

Responsible Packaging. Responsible Branding.

YUPO IML Substrates offer designers and manufacturers significant sustainability benefits, and therefore value, as a result of both general YUPO attributes and label processing methods:

  • YUPO is a 100% tree-free substrate, preserving our forests for future generations
  • During the iml process, YUPO actually becomes part of blow-molded bottles, and is recyclable as part of the packaging. Thus, no chemicals are required for label removal.
  • YUPO iml requires no backing materials, resulting in significant source reduction and decrease in waste products.
  • Completely recyclable, trim materials are able to be assimilated back into the substrate manufacture process.
