Sustainability Story: Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 3073
Introducing Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 3073. This versatile,
super-sticky tape is designed with 10 times the tack of standard
box sealing tapes, so it will stick to most packaging material
in use today.
Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 3073 is made with an adhesive that contains over
ten percent (10%) renewable, bio-based content and uses recycled
materials in the core.
"Environmental standards are rapidly evolving, and our customers are
constantly seeking new ways to reduce costs and improve their environmental
said Ginny Fox for 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division.
"3M is committed to creating solutions with less impact on the
environment, both as a corporate 3M standard and to help our customers meet
their sustainability goals."
To that point, 3M factories have reduced energy consumption by
28 percent since 2000. From 1990 to 2009, 3M has achieved a
96 percent reduction in absolute volatile air emissions and a
68 percent reduction in solid waste indexed to net sales.
