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.

Our range of chinese takeout food packaging

What makes us different to other packaging suppliers, though, is that not only are our products fully sustainable (helping to reduce your carbon footprint), they are also affordable and convenient to buy in realistic quantities. 

We know that increasing numbers of takeaway, catering and events businesses are keen to reduce their use of single use, disposable plastic products. However, we also know that whilst a wide range of plastic-free products are now available, they have tended to be expensive and difficult to source. We offer an alternative, with a wide range of eco-friendly packaging products, available to order from our user-friendly website at cost-effective prices. In addition, we don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to order in quantities which are right for you: whether you need 100 Chinese takeaway boxes or 1000’s. 

We supply a huge range of food packaging products, all of which are made from plants and not plastic. Our products are ideal for use in takeaways, cafes, coffee shops, events businesses and farmers markets, or when entertaining at home. You’ll find that our range includes everything from eco-friendly cartons and boxes for Chinese food, through to fish and chip boxes, sandwich cartons, deli pots, platters and much, much more. 

How our products should be recycled

Many of our products look very similar to their plastic counterparts, however they are made from plant-based alternatives. As such, they mustn’t be recycled with other plastic waste as they are either fully compostable or biodegradable. 

Compostable items are suitable for collection with other compostable food waste by your local council (check locally). Alternatively, they can also be composted in your garden compost bin, but please note that it will take longer for them to fully degrade, as the process depends on environmental conditions or the method you use. 

Biodegradable items are suitable for collection by local councils who have the special industrial composting facilities required. However, at present, this type of facility isn’t available in all areas of the UK, so please check the situation where you live first.
