EcoEnclose offers stickers in a number of different facestocks - 100% recycled paper, coated paper and plastic. Regardless of the facestock, stickers are not recyclable in isolation. The question to ask is - how do they effect the recyclability of the substrate they are placed on. In most cases, the package they are on can be recycled as it normally would. Stickers feature recycle friendly adhesive that allows them to be easily separated in the recycling process.
