Pasadena, Calif.-based Avery Dennison Corp. has introduced 3002T polyester woven-edge satin tape
made from 100-percent post-consumer waste derived from recycled plastic bottles. According to Avery
Dennison, 3002T is the first recycled woven-edge tape to receive third-party accreditation, attain
Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certification and feature thermal transfer and wet ink print capabilities.
The tape can be printed on both sides and complements sustainable apparel solutions.
Avery Dennison developed 3002T to relate to England-based retailer Marks and Spencer’s Plan
A, a corporate sustainability strategy. Avery Dennison also will supply up to 9 million tags and
woven labels this year to the Cotton Made in Africa (CmiA) project, which promotes environmentally
and socially responsible cotton production. Avery Dennison is the sole supplier of CmiA’s
standardized tags and woven labels.
