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.

Dedicated products made from plants and not plastic

From eco-friendly cutlery such as forks, knives and spoons, through to cups, takeaway cartons, deli pots, sandwich platters and cake boxes, we have everything you need to serve and sell takeaway food and drinks. 

Our products are ideal for use in cafes, coffee shops, takeaways, outside catering and events businesses, food stalls and farmers markets, or for entertaining at home. You’ll find that our products are just as robust and practical as their plastic counterparts, with options suitable for hot and cold food, fresh produce, confectionery, drinks and much more. 

Why choose eco-friendly alternatives?

Unfortunately, single use plastic cutlery and catering disposables usually end up in landfill or as plastic pollution in the environment. Plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade and as the majority is manufactured for just one use before being thrown away, it’s clear that we need to find eco-friendly alternatives. 

At Single Use Alternatives we understand the problem faced by many catering, takeaway businesses and fresh food producers. A cheap and convenient supply of single use catering disposables and packaging is essential to keep your business up and running whilst keeping costs as low as possible. 

It is our mission to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint as well as helping the environment. We do this by offering an affordable range of eco friendly alternatives, available at cost-effective prices for convenient direct delivery. We don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to order in quantities which are right for you; whether you need 100 sets of eco friendly single use cutlery or 1000s. 

Our website is fully secure, mobile first and user friendly, with easy account set up, management and re-ordering. We’re happy to send out free product samples and with convenient delivery services available, your products will be with you in no time.
