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.
To find out more about our products simply browse through our website. If you have any questions we’d love to hear from you: please complete the enquiry form on our contact page.
Our product range
We supply a wide range of food packaging products, ideal for use in cafes, coffee shops, takeaways and catering businesses, or for entertaining at home. From eco takeaway boxes for hot food, pizzas or fish and chips, through to ice cream pots, salad bowls and sandwich boxes, our range has everything you need to serve food to your customers. We also stock a huge selection of disposable cups for hot drinks, cold cups, lids, stirrers, straws and more.
Our products are all 100% plastic free but can be comparable in cost to their plastic counterparts, providing you with reassurance that not only are they good for the planet, they’re good for your pocket too
At Single Use Alternatives we offer something different and can supply you with a wide range of eco friendly compostable takeaway boxes and food packaging products that don’t cost the earth. Our products can be comparable in price to their plastic counterparts, whilst being easy and convenient to order from our secure website. 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 takeaway boxes or 1000s! Last and by no means least, we provide a range of cost-effective UK delivery options, including next day delivery if required.
Thanks to recent worldwide publicity, the problems caused by plastic pollution is something we’re all increasingly aware of. When you consider that plastic can take up to 400 years to degrade, and that most of the plastic ever produced still exists in some form, something has to be done.
Alternatives to disposable plastic catering products are now available, however many of them are expensive and not as sustainable as they might seem. In addition, finding viable solutions can be difficult and time-consuming. At Single Use Alternatives it is our mission to make practical, affordable and truly sustainable catering products widely available to wholesale and retail customers.
You’ll find that our website is user-friendly, mobile-friendly and fully secure. Ordering and setting up an account is straightforward and we offer a range of low-cost, convenient UK delivery options. Last and by no means least, 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 100s or 1000s.
We also aim to make recycling as simple as we can. Our products are either compostable or biodegradable and are clearly labelled so you’ll know how to recycle them correctly. Compostable products are suitable for collection by your local council with other compostable food waste, or disposed of in your compost bin at home (this could take up to 12 months to compost in a well managed bin). Biodegradable products can be collected by local councils who have special industrial composting facilities but this service isn’t currently available in all areas. Please check the situation where you live first.
