Eco friendly travel cutlery sets

Putting together your own eco-friendly travel cutlery set is a great way to reduce your use of single use plastics when eating on the go. At Single Use Alternatives we have a dedicated range of sustainable alternatives to disposable plastic cutlery, ideal for packed lunches, picnics and parties. From bamboo cutlery and palm leaf plates, through to compostable cups, lids and stirrers, we can help you reduce your carbon footprint whilst helping the environment.

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.

Our products: made from plants, not plastic

Single Use Alternatives is a young business, dedicated to making it simple and cost-effective to switch to sustainable alternatives to single use plastics, including polystyrene. We have the UK’s most comprehensive eco-friendly catering supplies website, with over 400 practical products made from plants and not oil based plastics. 

Our products are ideal for serving a wide range of hot and cold food and drink, from salads, sandwiches and snacks, through to takeaway meals, pizzas and cakes. Whether you’re buying eco-friendly catering disposables for your cafe, coffee shop or takeaway business, or for use at home, you’ll find that our products are affordable and convenient to buy. 

Our mission

We know that many catering businesses and individuals rely upon a cheap supply of plastic catering disposables such as cutlery, cups and food cartons. However, because plastic disposables usually end up in landfill or as plastic pollution in the environment, finding sustainable alternatives is essential. 

Although a wide range of alternatives to plastic catering disposables are now available, they tend to cost more and be difficult to source in realistic quantities. After all, why should we pay more to buy products which help protect the planet? It is our mission to address this problem by offering a dedicated range of products made from plants not plastic, available to order direct to your business or home.

To make the switch from plastic disposables even easier, you’ll find our products can be comparable in cost, with free product samples available so you can try-before-you-buy. We don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to buy in quantities which are right for you; whether you need 100 eco friendly cutlery items or 1000s.
