In 2009, TLMI introduced its L.I.F.E. program to its converter and supplier members. L.I.F.E. (Label Initiative for the Environment) was developed by TLMI in order to assist the association’s members with finding cost effective ways to reduce their company’s environmental footprint.

What is L.I.F.E. about?

TLMI’s goal in creating the L.I.F.E. Program was to offer an audited certification process tailored specifically to the narrow web printing and converting industry. Examples of elements that companies address in undergoing the L.I.F.E. certification process include the recycle-compatibility of adhesives; the source and destination of liner materials and how narrow web companies are driving recycling programs for these materials; and material construction light-weighting (adopting thinner constructions that generate less waste). Front office issues are also addressed such as total energy utilization, where that energy is coming from and what a business is doing to actively reduce its overall carbon footprint.
