HOW TO RECYCLE OUR PACKAGING

You can recycle 99% of the packaging in your Marley Spoon orders!

BOX

What is it?

Our boxes are 100% recyclable. They are made from 70% recycled cardboard content.

Where should it go? 

Flatten the box and place the material in the recycling bin.

ICE PACKS

What is it?

The outer layer of the ice packs is 100% recyclable, and is made from low density polyethylene (LDPE4). The substance inside the ice packs is a non-toxic gel that is disposable, which is made up of 99.5% water and 0.5% sodium polyacrylate.

Where should it go? 

To dispose of the gel inside the ice packs, simply empty the contents into your household bin. The gel helps soil to retain water, so you can also empty it into your backyard or pot plants, too!

The outer plastic layer of the ice packs is 100% recyclable, and can be taken to your nearest REDcycle drop off point. These are located at all major supermarkets – you can search for your nearest drop off point on the REDcycle website.

You can also keep the ice packs in your freezer for the next time you need one!

*Please note that we're currently updating the design of our ice packs, however the above recycling information remains correct.

PAPER BAGS

What is it?

Our paper bags used to bundle each recipe together are 100% recyclable. They are made in a facility that is accredited by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) and Program for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification (PEFC). The stickers used to seal the paper bags are made from paper, and are also recyclable.

Where should it go? 

Place the paper bags and the bag stickers in the recycling bin.

INGREDIENTS PACKAGING

What is it?

Our ingredient packets are made from either firm or soft plastic, from mostly low density polyethylene and polypropylene.

Where should it go?

The soft plastic packets that contain spices and sauces are recyclable. These can be taken to your nearest REDcycle drop off point, located at all major supermarkets – you can search for your nearest drop off point on the REDcycle website. Make sure they are empty and clean inside before recycling.

The hard plastic containers – that contain ingredients like olives and curry pastes – are accepted as recyclables by most city recycling programs. Please check your local recycling information to confirm if they can be added to your recycling bin. Make sure they are empty and clean inside before recycling.

INSULATION BAGS

What is it?

The insulation bags are used to keep perishable items fresh in your orders and are made from 30% recycled materials.

Where should it go? 

The insulation bags are 100% recyclable, and can be taken to your nearest REDcycle drop off point. These are located at all major supermarkets –

It's our top priority to make sure you receive the best quality ingredients in your orders. We pack your boxes with cooler bags and ice packs to keep chilled items cold and all ingredients fresh,
all the way to your door.

We work hard to use the optimal packaging for your orders, and to find ways to ensure it's as sustainable as possible – 99% of the packaging in your Marley Spoon orders is recyclable! Follow this guide to recycle your boxes correctly.

Sustainability is a top priority for us at Marley Spoon, and we have a range of sustainability initiatives active across our business. 

When it comes to packaging, we're always working closely with suppliers to find new, innovative ways to reduce and improve the packaging used at all points in our supply chain. We're proud to be a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), which means we've made a commitment to continuously reduce packaging and waste, and to an annual audit of our packaging practices.

Plus, our meal kits make low waste cooking possible – we send the exact, pre-portioned ingredients you need for every recipe, and our business generates less than 1% waste – and Marley Spoon is also 100% carbon neutral.
