    When you add 42 dogs to an already bustling office building there are many things that could happen.  But in the case of Avery Dennison’s second annual “Bring Your Dog to Work Day” — a fundraiser for the United Way of Lake County — the result was a resounding success. Wednesday, September 28th was Bring Your Dog to Work Day here at our Materials Group North America headquarters in Mentor and I was lucky enough to be able to bring my 12 year old Schnauzer/Poodle Sebastian.more...

    Avery Dennison celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2015. This got me thinking about what our 100th anniversary might look like - what will be different and what might painfully be the same.  On the forefront of my mind is the changing landscape in packaging and the focus on landfills, emissions, deforestation, water quality and accessibility. We must also consider the increasing investment in renewable energy and materials, recycling, working conditions and equality.more...

This can be quite frustrating and no amount of packing tape can ease your frustration.more...

    For a moment, let’s go back in about four years ago. The green or sustainability movement was taking shape for many of us, and we began to change our daily lives to be more mindful of the environment. It was at this time we began working with a large consumer beverage company who was exploring a new type of label made of recyclable polyester, which would help them achieve eco friendly packaging for their brand.more...

Regardless of the repetition in use, innovation is a great word. Innovation tells us what the future holds and what’s ready now to positively change the way we live and work together. And as we are exposed to the latest innovations from driverless automobiles andmore...
