“How the ACT label can revolutionize sustainability in the consumable business”
Most consumables in the laboratory are single-use and have historically been given a bad reputation in the current environmental plastic crisis. The ACT label is a unique way to provide the consumer an opportunity to better understand manufacturing practices, energy and water use, packaging content, and end-of-life for a consumable product. Furthermore, the ACT label forces the manufacturer to continually make improvements to the manufacturing process over time.
