It is our mission to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint, whilst also helping the environment, by offering a convenient supply of realistic priced, plastic free products.

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.

Plastic-free cutlery sets that are practical too

Eco friendly cutlery sets are ideal for eating on the go and you’ll find our dedicated range includes plenty of practical options; from compostable knives, forks and spoons, through to drinks stirrers, straws, chip forks and ice cream scoops.

Designed for use in cafes, coffee shops, takeaways, food stalls, events and catering businesses, or for picnics, packed lunches and entertaining at home, our products are robust, durable and 100% plastic free. 

We have the UK’s most comprehensive website, dedicated to sustainable alternatives to single use plastic catering disposable, with over 400 products made from plants not oil based plastic. Our dedicated products include everything from packaging for takeaway meals and snacks, cake and confectionery boxes and cups for drinks, through to wrap, bags, labels and much more. 

Making the switch to sustainable alternatives

At Single Use Alternatives we understand that takeaway and catering businesses rely upon a cheap and convenient supply of single use plastic disposables. Unfortunately, it is items such as these which contribute to the problems caused by plastic pollution in the environment. 

When you consider that plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade, and that most of the plastic that’s ever been produced still exists in some form, something has to change. 

Although sustainable alternatives to plastic disposables are available, they tend to be expensive and difficult to source in realistic quantities. It is our aim to make it easier to switch to eco friendly cutlery sets and compostable food packaging by offering a dedicated range of practical catering disposables which are cost-effective and simple to order.
