Sustainability

Hub Labels is committed to environmentally friendly printing practices. Our unique approach involves printing with eco-friendly water-based and UV inks, and recycling inks, liner waste, and water. We are involved in programs to increase the use of renewable energy, decrease all waste in and outside of the plant, and are always exploring more environmentally responsible materials and manufacturing procedures.

How else is Hub Labels going green?

We teamed up with the EPA certified SmartWay® transportation vendors to ensure that our products are being shipped to their destinations in an environmentally friendly and economical way.

  • We are a certified member of Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute’s (TLMI) L.I.F.E. program (Label Initiative for the Environment), a sustainability program designed specifically for the label industry. This green program demands that members constantly decrease their environmental impact and carbon footprint in four key areas: clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product design, and management practices. More information about the L.I.F.E. program can be found on their website.
  • We offer Ravenwood Linerless Labels. Without the backing material on standard labels, linerless labels help reduce landfill waste by thousands of tons each year. Learn more about linerless labels and how they can work for you.

Hub Goes Electric with a Chevrolet Volt

Hub Labels recently purchased a 2015 Chevrolet Volt to use as a company vehicle. The Volt is unlike traditional hybrid cars because we can drive on pure electricity for the everyday commute and seamlessly switch to gasoline for longer trips.

For less than the cost of a latte, we can fully charge the Volt and get an EPA-estimated 38 miles gas-free and it averages 900 miles between fill-ups. With the standard 120V charging unit we can fully charge the battery in about 10 to 16 hours.

In addition, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named Volt a 2015 Top Safety Pick in its Small Car segment. With all of these great incentives, plus being environmentally friendly, the Volt is a great addition to Hub.
