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 mission to help you reduce, refuse, reuse, repurpose and recycle
We know that many catering businesses, coffee shops, cafes and takeaways rely upon a cheap and convenient supply of disposable food packaging items. It is our aim to provide sustainable alternatives to these items. Our products are available at affordable prices and can be ordered in realistic quantities, whilst our user-friendly, mobile-first ordering system, combined with hassle-free delivery, can help you reduce your impact on the environment.
Why Single Use Alternatives?
Plastic has been in commercial production since the mid 20th century. In that time it is estimated that over 8 billion tons has been produced and of this, over 6 billion tons has gone to landfill or has ended up as plastic pollution in the environment. If we carry on in this way, in 30 years time there will be 12 billion tons of plastic waste. To compound the problem further, most of the plastic that’s ever been produced still exists in some form. When you consider that a large proportion of this plastic is manufactured for one use before it’s thrown away, something has to change.
Thanks to programmes such as the BBC’s Blue Planet, there is now an increased awareness of the problem of plastic pollution. Viable alternatives to single use plastics have been developed and are available, but they are often expensive and can be difficult to source.
We know that people want to buy alternatives to single use plastics but don’t want to pay premium prices. This is why we offer a wide range of compostable or biodegradable food packaging products which are cost-effective and convenient to buy. From hot food containers and coffee cups, through to disposable cutlery, straws and plates, our products are made from renewable resources.
We don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to order as much or as little as you need; whether that’s 100s or 1000s and our products are available to wholesale and retail customers. In addition, to make it as easy as possible to buy eco packaging for food, we offer a range of hassle-free, convenient delivery options.
