From hybrid cars to environmentally conscious cleaning products, many Americans are putting a priority on finding new eco-friendly products that meet everyday needs. In 1961, 3M offered people a new, convenient home and office necessity with the invention of Scotch Magic Tape - know for being frosty on the roll, invisible on paper and easy to write upon. Now, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Scotch Magic Tape, 3M is continuing the innovation by launching the first-of-its-kind Scotch Magic Eco-Friendly Tape.
Scotch Magic Eco-Friendly Tape (including refillable dispenser, packaging and tape) is made from more than 75 percent renewable or recycled materials. The boxed refill roll, including packaging, is made from more than 65 percent renewable or recycled materials. Because of its great adhesive strength, photo-safe formulation and performance, Scotch Magic Tape has been a fixture in homes, schools and offices for 50 years. Scotch Magic Eco-Friendly Tape offers these same great properties, now in an even more environmentally-friendly version.
"We're so excited to offer an eco-friendly version of the Scotch Magic Tape people know, love and use on a daily basis," said Pete Ley, Business Unit Manager for Scotch Home and Office Tapes at 3M. "We believe this is a great innovation during a time when people really are looking for those everyday things they can do to lessen their impact on the environment."
