Who we are

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.

The benefits of going plastic-free

By choosing environmentally friendly, plastic-free alternatives to the single use, disposable products you use to serve and package food, you’ll be making a significant reduction to your impact upon the environment. Using products made from plant-based materials, rather than plastics, provides an important way to ‘close the loop’ by taking carbon out of the atmosphere. When products are made from plant-based materials, less greenhouse gas is produced and less energy is used during the manufacturing process. Once our products have been fully composted after use, fossil fuels are stored in the ground rather than released into the atmosphere. This is an important objective for net zero and a big win for the planet. 

We know that many catering and hospitality businesses rely upon a convenient and cheap supply of single use, disposable products. Although many would like to choose eco friendly products, they have often been more expensive and difficult to source in realistic quantities. It is our aim to offer something different and you’ll find that our products are very competitive, compostable or biodegradable, 100% plastic free, simple to order and convenient to buy in quantities which are right for you: whether you need just 100 coffee cups or 1000s. 

Our coffee cups and lids product range

Our product range is perfect for use in your catering business or for entertaining at home. From double walled coffee cups, lids and stirrers, through to sandwich boxes, food pots and cutlery, our cost-effective products are just as robust as their plastic counterparts. To discover our complete range of food containers, cups and lids, tableware and accessories, why not browse through our website?

Our mission

At Single Use Alternatives our mission is simple: to provide information on how we can all reduce our impact on the environment, whilst supplying a range of affordable, sustainably sourced alternatives to single use catering supplies. We know that although reducing our use of single use plastics might seem like a very small step to take, if we make changes now, it will result in a major difference for generations to come. 

Alongside reducing use of single use plastics, another important step to take is to minimise our use of disposables by thinking of alternatives which can be used instead. You’ve probably already heard of the five R’s of recycling: ‘refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle’. Choosing items which can be disposed of in a sustainable way by composting or recycling forms an important part of this message.
