recyclable coffee cups

Eco friendly party plates and cutlery delivered direct to your door

Single Use Alternatives is a young business, absolutely passionate about making it easy and affordable for businesses and individuals to choose sustainable alternatives to single use plastics. Our website has over 400 products made from plants not oil based plastic, including eco-friendly party supplies such as palm leaf plates.

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.

Cost-effective eco friendly tableware

From paper straws, cups, lids and stirrers, through to plates, cutlery and ice cream pots, our dedicated range of planet friendly products includes everything you need to serve food and drinks at your party or event. Our products are also ideal for use in coffee shops, takeaway businesses, catering businesses and food stalls, or for entertaining at home. 

You’ll find that our products are just as durable and practical as their plastic counterparts. The difference is that they’re made from sustainable plant based materials instead of plastic. As a result, once your party is over, our products shouldn’t be disposed of with other plastic recycling waste. 

The products we supply are either fully compostable or biodegradable. For compostable items, we suggest you check locally for compostables collections in local food waste. Alternatively, home compostable items can be placed in your home compost bin. However, it’s important to note that the home composting process takes longer than industrial composting as it depends on environmental conditions and the method you choose. 

Biodegradable items require special industrial composting facilities if they are to degrade in a timely manner. At present, not all local councils have this type of the facility so we suggest that you check the situation in your local area first.

Helping you protect the planet and your pocket

Although switching to sustainable alternatives to single use plastics might seem like a small step to take, the more of us who make the switch, the bigger and better the end result will be. 

At Single Use Alternatives we help individuals and businesses reduce their carbon footprint, as well as helping the environment. We do this by offering a dedicated range of sustainable catering disposables such as eco friendly party plates and cutlery. 

What makes us different from other eco friendly catering disposables suppliers, is that our products are cost-effective and easy to order in realistic quantities. We don’t set a minimum order value so whether you need 100 sets of eco-friendly party plates and cutlery or 1000s, the choice is yours.

You’ll find that our website is user-friendly, mobile first and fully secure. Setting up an account is simple, whilst straightforward re-ordering takes the hassle out of buying the products you use regularly. We’re also happy to send out free samples so you can try-before-you-buy.
