Recycle glassine label backing waste with us.

At Fibre Circle, we believe in the power of collaboration to drive positive change. We are reaching out to our valued partners with an exciting opportunity to be part of our initiative that not only benefits our environment but also elevates your commitment to corporate responsibility. We have partnered with Twinsaver on an initiative for the collection and recycling of post-consumer glassine label backing paper (LBP), which at the end of its life cycle, is repurposed into toilet tissue, wipes, blended industrial wipes and roller towels. This diverts LBP from landfill sites, and harnesses its potential to develop new, eco-friendly hygiene solutions.

The Opportunity: Recycling Glassine Label Backing Paper.
Why Participate?

  • Environmental Impact: By recycling label backing paper into tissue paper, we collectively reduce waste going to landfill and contribute to the circular economy. 
  •  Cost Savings: Embrace sustainable practices while potentially reducing disposal costs associated with label backing paper waste. 
  •  Corporate Responsibility: Showcase your commitment to environmental stewardship, aligning your brand with sustainability principles.
