This Little Label Can Do Big Things
In today’s world, there is still a legal requirement for a garment to carry a physical care and content label that communicates product information. This product information allows consumers to understand how to wash their garments correctly and what material(s) the garment is made up of. What if a label can do much more? At Avery Dennison, we believe the label can unlock opportunities that benefit the consumer and brand, as well as being a force for good.
This ‘little’ label isn’t so little after all. When digitally connected, the unassuming care label can help significantly improve the impact of the industry, by enabling a product to be intelligent, traceable, transparent, and circular. It can actually tell you a lot about a garment – how it was made and what it was made from, how to care for it, and how to recycle or resell it so it can live on.
Not only are consumers looking to brands to tell them how to wash their garments correctly, but they are also demanding sustainability and recycling information when it comes to their garments. The digitally connected label is a gateway that allows recyclers and resellers to identify the material later on in the garment life cycle, and it allows brands to provide consumers with transparency across the supply chain as well as enabling new digital revenue streams through direct to consumer touchpoints. All while helping to advance the circular economy.
When we work together, this little label can do big things. Now, imagine what this little label could do for you. Find out more.
