Two 'Green' Companies Honored

GLOUCESTER, MA | Multi-Color Corp. and Yerecic Label have been awarded L.I.F.E. (Label Initiative for the Environment) certification from the Tag and Label Mfrs. Inst. (TLMI). The Project L.I.F.E. program was developed to assist TLMI members in finding cost-effective ways to reduce their companies' environmental footprint.

The program is designed specifically for the narrow web segment of the industry and addresses four key elements: clean production, energy and greenhouse gases, product and environmentally preferable materials, and management practices.

TLMI president Frank Sablone explains, “The central objective in developing the L.I.F.E. initiative was to offer the association's members a credible and comprehensive program that addresses their sustainability requirements and the opportunity to take their L.I.F.E. certification to their own customer base to further demonstrate their commitment to the environment and to the greater industry….”
