Save the planet and protect your profits with our range of eco friendly takeaway packaging

Single Use Alternatives is an online store which specialises in selling a wide range of eco friendly takeaway packaging products for business or home use. Affordable, sustainable and convenient, our products can be comparable in cost to disposable single use plastic items and are available for hassle-free delivery direct to your door.

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 eco takeaway packaging range

We supply everything you need to serve takeaway food and drinks to your customers, or for entertaining at home. Our eco friendly food packaging range includes boxes and cartons for hot food, sandwiches, ice cream, snacks and sweets, through to coffee cups, cold cups, lids, straws and stirrers. Ideal for use by outside catering businesses, street food stalls, cafes, takeaway shops and restaurants, our products offer a sustainable alternative to single use plastic products.

Unlike other eco packaging suppliers, you’ll find our prices can be comparable to many of the disposable plastic food packaging suppliers you’ve used before. In addition, because we don’t set a minimum order value, our products can be purchased by wholesale and retail customers alike. We understand that you might want to order 100s of a particular product rather than 1000s! Last and by no means least, our secure, mobile-friendly website is easy to use and offers a range of affordable delivery options, including next day delivery if required.

Why choose Single Use Alternatives?

Thanks to increased public awareness, the problems caused by plastic pollution in the environment have become a huge concern for many people. When you consider that most of the plastic that’s ever been produced still exists in some form, and that plastic can take up to 400 years to degrade, something has to be done.

We understand that many catering businesses face tight profit margins and it can be hard to justify buying eco takeaway packaging when it’s historically been more expensive. This is why we aim to keep our prices as low as possible; offering you a wide range of affordable, realistically priced products which don’t cost the earth. After all, why should you have to spend more when the future of the planet is at stake?

How to recycle our products

Our range of compostable and biodegradable food packaging products are clearly categorised according to how they should be recycled to make it easier for you to choose products to suit your local recycling facilities. Compostable packaging can be either recycled with other food waste by your local council in an industrial composting facility, or in your compost bin at home where the process will take around 12 months. Biodegradable products should be recycled in special industrial composting facilities; please note that not all local councils are able to offer this service at present, so please check the situation where you live.
