Who we are

Single Use Alternatives was founded by Adrian and Neil; two brothers who are passionate about enjoying the outdoors and caring for the environment. Concerned about the impact single use plastics are having upon the environment, we decided to offer a range of cost effective high quality, alternative products.

Food packaging made from plants not plastic

Our products are 100% plastic free and made from plant based materials rather than oil-based plastics which are harmful to the environment (and drive climate change). 

Since plastic was first commercially manufactured, more than 8 billion tonnes have been produced. Of this, the majority is manufactured for just one single use before being thrown away, ending up in landfill or as plastic pollution in the environment. When you consider that plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade, it’s clear that we need to change our ways. 

Choosing the most environmentally friendly food packaging might seem like a small step to take. However, the more of us who take this step, the bigger and better the end result will be. At Single Use Alternatives we’re doing our bit by making it easy and affordable to switch to sustainable alternatives to single use plastic food packaging, including products made from polystyrene. 

You’ll find that we have the UK’s most comprehensive website which has over 400 sustainable alternatives to plastic packaging for takeaway food and drinks. Ideal for everything from hot and cold drinks, through to takeaway meals, fresh produce, deli and confectionary items, ice creams and more, our products are made from either biodegradable or compostable materials. 

We understand that regardless of how environmentally friendly our products might be, it’s important that they’re also affordable and easy to order. After all, why should you pay more for products which help the environment? As such, you’ll find that our products are realistically priced, with discounts of up to 20% off manufacturer prices. We’re happy to send product samples so you can try before you buy, and thanks to our convenient delivery service, we’ll deliver direct to your door. 

Last and by no means least, because we don’t set a minimum order value you’ll be able to order in quantities which are right for you. So, whether you need 100 takeaway cartons or 1000s that’s no problem.
