1. A method to manufacture a plastic object embedding a paper-based circuit, comprising steps of:
A. providing or producing a paper-based electronic circuit, for use as an in-mould label, and a mould, the mould being suitable for providing the shape of the plastic object;
B. positioning the paper-based electronic circuit inside the mould;
C. providing liquid plastic in the mould; and
D. allowing the plastic to solidify and recovering the moulded plastic object embedding the paper-based electronic circuit;
wherein the paper-based electronic circuit carries an electronic circuit which is at least partly printed on a paper-based substrate.
