What is the ARL Marketplace?

The ARL Marketplace is an online platform dedicated to helping small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) start using the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) on their packaging. It features a range of free educational tools and resources exploring the ARL and the benefits of sustainable packaging for businesses, customers and the environment.

The ARL Marketplace Directory is where SMEs can find packaging from a range of packaging suppliers and apply the ARL. All packaging available on the ARL Marketplace has been evaluated for recyclability and is ready to label with the ARL in a few simple steps.
