S-One Labels and Packaging has been named an honoree of the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the Sustainability category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
A panel of editorial judges chose S-One for its positive impact on customers, community, industry, environment, and society.
According to the World Economic Forum, plastic packaging has become a global issue, with projections of our oceans containing more plastic than fish by the year 2050. S-One Holdings is committed to helping the label and packaging industry by designing and developing sustainable flexible packaging containing renewable materials that, when they reach their end of life, can be composted, and returned to the earth.
In August of this year, S-OneLP received the Lomi Approved designation for a selection of ReEarth compostable films. The ReEarth line of prelaminated flexible packaging films are designed using bio-based and compostable components. Lomi Approved is a certification for non-food compostable items, including bioplastics, which can be broken down by Lomi, so they can biodegrade faster and ultimately turn into dirt.
Also this year, S-One launched its mentorship partnership with State College of Florida (SCF), Manatee-Sarasota, in developing local IT talent to meet the demand from area businesses.
