The level of personal reuse of plastic grocery bags is soaring. It appears that many people are cautious about getting close contact with other people's stuff, to include supply chain products such as plastic grocery bags. Some regions in the US temporarily lift the ban of single-use plastic bags as a response to pandemic measures.

Since it is still uncertain when this pandemic will end, it seems plastic shoppers' bags will stay in demand for a longer period as people now will remain leery even if the local government will announce clear of the virus. Prior to the pandemic, some people chose not to use plastic bags for environmental concern. What most do not realize is that we supply reusable and recyclable plastic grocery and shopping bags to grocery stores across America. They can be washed when you want to reuse it to ensure it is free of germs.

Here are some of the benefits of using recyclable plastic grocery bags versus reusable paper bags:

  • Plastic bags are 100% recyclable and for all environmental impacts related to air emissions, water emissions, and solid waste – those of paper bags are significantly greater than that of plastic grocery bags
  • Plastic bags use 40% less energy to produce and generate 80% less solid waste than paper
  • Paper bags generate 70% more emissions and 50 times more water pollutants than plastic bags
  • Even paper bags made from 100% recycled fiber use more fossil fuels than plastic bags
  • Coronavirus can remain for only 2-3 days on plastic but on paper, they can stay viable for up to 5 days.

Pressure-Sensitive Labels for Commodity Identification

Atlantic Poly Pressure-Sensitive Labels Boston, MA

Pressure-sensitive labels are decals or stickers you found attached to the widest range of commodity products. They serve as a product identifier and provide details about the product. Common product applications are bottled or canned goods, toys, medical devices, mailing corrugated boxes, and the list goes on.

If you look at them closely, you'll see that pressure-sensitive labels are made up of multiple layers: the liner, the adhesive, the face stock, and finally, the topcoat or laminate. Each layer performs different functions.

Liner

The liner is a web film that serves as the backing material. The film can be a semi-bleached paper, a craft paper, or a much tougher clear film. A special coat is applied to the liner so it will be easier to take off the label regardless of how tough the adhesive used.

Facestock

The face stock is the primary component of the label. The material options range from a paper, a film to a metallic foil. This is where the ink is pressed. A topcoat or a laminate can be put in place as a protective layer of the artwork.

Adhesive

It is the layer where a tough glue is applied so it can stick to any surface. The adhesives are already applied during the manufacturing so the sheet or roll of labels is ready to use once received by the customer.

Atlantic Poly manufactures 365 different types of Polyethylene Pressure-Sensitive Labels. We only use special types of adhesive so the labels will adhere to most surfaces. Most Wholesale Polyethylene Labels and Wholesale Poly Labels ship within 48 hours. As a Pressure Sensitive Label Supplier, we offer 500 labels per roll. Call Atlantic Poly, Inc. for custom pressure-sensitive labels.
