Taylor Label’s Green-Cycle Production and GoGreen Labels Shipped CarbonFree®
Tuesday, 5 March 2013
The continuing focus on Corporate Social/Environmental Responsibility (CSR) programs requires companies to seek out environmentally sustainable practices in every aspect of their operations. While many businesses rely upon product packaging and shipment to reach their customers, they can “green” these activities through careful selection of shipping products, including the labels they use to address and mail their products.
Carbonfund.org business partner Taylor Label is committed to manufacturing its ‘GoGreen’ Labels through a process it calls ‘Green-Cycle Production’. This process focuses on the use of environmentally sound raw materials, 100% wind-powered production facility, FSC-certified paper and environmentally benign and recyclable adhesives.
In addition, Taylor Label has neutralized 100% of the carbon emissions from shipping its products to customers through the CarbonFree® Shipping program for the past five years. “Carbonfund.org has products specifically suited to our needs. Their partnership managers and website make accessing their services a straight-forward and successful process,” explains Lloyd Taylor, President of Taylor Label.
Taylor Label has been voted the “Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Company” at the annual Environmental Printing Awards, developed the industry’s first Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified label stock and became the first FSC-certified label manufacturer in North America. Taylor Label is also the founding member of ‘Canada’s Green Printers’, a not-for-profit organization designed to help printers share environmental best-practices within the industry. Their comprehensive and long-term commitment to environmentally-responsible product development, manufacturing and shipment underscore Taylor Label’s leadership in sustainability within the shipping label industry.
