PLM BIO stands for Plant Label Material BIO. This innovative product was developed by Designstar in collaboration with Schut Papier and Benelux Paper for the ornamental plant sector. The sustainable label is a response to the increasing demand for environmentally friendly materials. Due to the stringent requirements for replacement materials, there have been very few alternatives to plastics available in the floriculture sector until now. PLM BIO is a Dutch innovation and developed with the expertise of the 400-year-old factory Schut Papier.
Designstar supplies the material in various designs, depending on the application. The material is waterproof and perfect for plant labels, pot covers, Point of Sale material and packaging. The material is FSC certified, fully recyclable and biodegradable according to the NEN 13432 standard.
"We are convinced that with the introduction of this material we will make a nice contribution to reducing the pollution on our planet," says Leo van Antwerpen, director of Designstar.
After signing the contract between Designstar, Schut Papier and Benelux Paper, the launch was made official with a joint photo session at the Trade Fair.
