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.

Cost-effective products which are safe for the environment

If your business sells takeaway food or drinks, the chances are that you use single use plastic products such as disposable cups, cutlery and bags. We know that many catering businesses rely on disposable products such as these, but thanks to increasing awareness of the problems caused by plastic pollution in the environment, something has to change. 

Although a wide range of eco friendly food packaging is available, it has historically been seen as expensive and can be difficult to buy in realistic quantities. As a result many businesses are deterred by the cost of choosing sustainable alternatives to single use plastics. It is our aim to offer something different and you’ll find that our products are cost-effective and easy to buy in quantities which are right for you: whether that’s in the 100s or 1000s. In addition, our website is user-friendly, fully-secure and offers a range of convenient delivery options including next day delivery if required.

We supply a huge range of compostable or biodegradable food packaging products, with options to suit all requirements. From coffee cups, lids and straws, through to food containers, wrap, bags and tableware, our products are ideal for use by cafes, catering businesses, takeaways and food stalls, or for entertaining at home. 

About our products

Our eco food packaging products are robust, durable and practical. Although some might look as though they are made from plastic, they are actually made from plant-based materials which are designed to be composted or biodegraded. 

To ensure that recycling is as straightforward as possible for you and your customers, our products are labelled so you’ll know at a glance whether they’re compostable or biodegradable. Compostable products are suitable for industrial composting as part of your local council’s recycling service, or for composting in your garden compost bin. Please note though that the composting process will take longer at home as speed of the process depends on the type of bin and conditions. 

The process used to recycle biodegradable items is different in that a special industrial composter is required. Unfortunately, not all local councils are currently able to process biodegradable items so please check the situation where you live first.
