Eco-friendly self-adhesive labels give this eco-friendly oil label a Kickstart!
We’re delighted to share a brand new prototype product (with lovely self adhesive labels) from our client Green Oil UK.
An eco-conscious company, they have developed a new new PTFE free cycle spray lubricant (made from plants) which has launched on Kickstarter!
Kickstarter helps creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality.



Green Oil UK Ltd is Simon Nash’s brainchild, and the EcoSpray Lube was developed because of a request by a number of green minded bike shops, who are currently using Green Oil’s Wet Lube and other products, but were unable to get a green aerosol lube.

PTFE and petrochemical spray lubes are bad for the environment and people's health; Simon is a genuine eco-warrior and has been known to spray himself in the face with his own lubricant to prove its safety.
Simon said: “Green Oil EcoSpray Lube has been a long time in the making. Simply, people asked for it. It’s an important step to stop people breathing in PTFE, in bike shops and cycling cafés, which often smell like the products they use

A client of ours for some time, we produce all of their labels and know their business well. In this instance we specified a white polypropylene with a gloss varnish finish that would look attractive but also work with the oils so that the self adhesive labels will not spoil.
As regards the product itself, Nash concludes “Creating a production line for an aerosol is expensive, so we've turned to Kickstarter. We want to get Green Oil EcoSpray Lube to as many people as possible. This isn't a product we can make on our normal production line as aerosols require special filling machines and packaging.
