Eco friendly cups for coffee, catering supplies and more


Single Use Alternatives is an online store, specialising in the supply of sustainable catering disposables such as eco friendly coffee cups, takeaway cartons and food trays. Our products are made from plant based materials instead of oil based plastic, offering a convenient, cost-effective way to reduce your carbon footprint whilst helping the environment.

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.

Affordable alternatives to plastic disposable coffee cups

We know that catering businesses, coffee shops, cafes, takeaways and outside events businesses rely upon a cheap and convenient supply of catering disposables. Unfortunately plastic disposables make a massive contribution to the problem of plastic pollution in the environment as most end up either as pollution, or in landfill. As plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade, we need to find plastic free alternatives. 

At Single Use Alternatives we understand that although alternatives to single use plastics are now available, the range of products can be confusing. In addition, eco-friendly products often have had a higher price tag, whilst being difficult to buy in realistic quantities. 

It is our mission to offer something different. Our website has over 400 products made from plants and not plastic, with items clearly labelled as compostable or biodegradable. Our prices are competitive, with further discounts of up to 20% available on wholesale orders. We offer UK-wide delivery, with next day delivery available if required, and free product samples available on request. 

To make ordering as simple and practical as possible, our website is fully secure, user friendly and has easy account management and re-ordering available. In addition, because we don’t set a minimum order value, you’ll be able to order as many products as you need; whether that’s 100 eco friendly cups for coffee or 1000s!

Our products are durable and practical, with options ideal for serving and packaging a huge range of food and drinks, including coffee, sandwiches, takeaway meals, fresh produce, confectionery, meat, dairy and deli goods. Perfect for use everywhere from coffee shops and hot food takeaways, through to farmers markets and food stalls, our products are great for the planet and your budget.
