Eco friendly straws and stirrers that don’t cost the earth

Sustainability is a growing issue which is becoming increasingly important to both the takeaway food service industry and consumers. As we’re more aware of the problems caused by plastic pollution, finding replacements to disposable single use items such as plastic straws and plastic stirrers is an effective way to reduce our impact upon the environment.

At Single Use Alternatives our products provide great eco friendly alternatives to plastic products, including everything from environmentally friendly straws and stir sticks, through to cocktail straws and cups for coffee and tea. You’ll find that our products can be comparable in cost to plastic disposables; providing you with an affordable way to protect your profits and the planet.

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.
