The BioTag and EcoTag, two environmentally friendly, degradable tags, entered the market from Horticultural Identification Products (HIP) last year. This year, HIP is introducing the verdeTAG, a tag manufactured using 100 percent renewable resources such as recycled paper, 10 percent post-consumer waste and sourced wood products.
The verdeTAG also derives from 100 percent sustainable energy sources such as hydroelectric and wind power.
“Growers and retailers are constantly looking for a marketing edge, so HIP continues to search for new ‘green’ materials that are produced using eco-friendly manufacturing processes from beginning to end,” says Bob Lovejoy, president and CEO of HIP. “VerdeTAG offers professional growers and their brands the newest innovations in sustainable labeling technologies that simultaneously enhance the look of plant products and convey a corporate commitment to environmental awareness.”
The verdeTAG is also sustainable because it’s produced without chlorine and fossil fuels. Another feature of the verdeTAG is growers can write on it.
