Why choose plastic free catering disposables?

We know that cheap plastic disposables are essential for many catering businesses. However, when you consider that of the 8 billion tons of plastic that’s been produced, the majority still exists in some form. To compound the problem further, plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade and at present, most plastic disposables end up in landfill or as plastic pollution in the environment. 

So, what can be done? At Single Use Alternatives we know that although eco-friendly alternatives to plastic disposables are now available, they tend to be more expensive than their plastic equivalents. Furthermore, they can be confusing to buy and difficult to order in realistic quantities. 

We offer something different, with a dedicated range of sustainable alternatives to plastic catering disposables, available at realistic prices for convenient, direct delivery. Choosing our products over oil based plastics is not only a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, it’s also a great way to help safeguard the planet.
