MasterTag Inroduces Sustainable Plant Labels
MasterTag announces the introduction of two new label options made with environmentally sustainable materials. These new products are a result of an exhaustive search and testing and will provide growers with options for environmentally sensitive horticulture labeling. The materials, shape and design were developed to complement the new biodegradable pots that are increasingly becoming part of the complete retail package.
MasterTag will offer a stake label made of a recycled and recyclable material. Also part of the offering is a unique hanging tag that is made of a biodegradable and easily recyclable plastic and was developed to work with nursery, perennial and annual plant container products. Additionally, MasterTag offers creative design and product development services that can create custom labeling to compliment other eco-friendly packaging components.
