Plant-based, renewably sourced sheets. Thanks to "Naturameri," natural chemically unmodified molecules, IUV sheets are the eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastics. They degrade in the soil naturally when exposed to light, air and moisture after 30 days. They dissolve in water without damaging it. Perfect in mailing, gift or case boxes to decorate, protect, wrap products from scratches, dust, bumps. By choosing IUV sheets, buyers have the advantage to convey concrete and real sustainability on product-level brand awareness, as well as enhance premium status in the shopping and unboxing experience.
examples: candles, soaps, cosmetics, fashion, socks, shoes, devices, bottles, confectionery, designer goods, luxury.
Plant-based, plant-based labels from renewable natural sources, enriched with flower seeds. Ideal for improving the premium status of packaging or labeling products in the shopping and unboxing experience. Companies choosing IUV's plantable flower labels aim to communicate their values and commitment to environmental sustainability issues in a tangible way, with the goal of engaging the consumer as an active part of change through the realness of their actions: growing flowers while helping to save bees from extinction.
