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.

Environmentally friendly packaging for takeaway food and drinks

Whether you’re buying products for your coffee shop, cafe, takeaway, events or catering business, or simply for entertaining at home, we have everything you need to serve takeaway food and drinks. From cold drink cups and double walled coffee cups, lids and stirrers, through to cutlery, takeaway cartons, sandwich and cake boxes, our products are robust, practical and made from plant based materials. 

We know that practicality is only half the battle though. To make it as easy as possible for you to make the switch from single use plastic disposables, you’ll find that our website is user-friendly, fully secure and mobile first. We don’t set a minimum order value, so you’ll be able to order eco takeaway cups in quantities which are right for you; whether you need a 100 or thousands. Our prices are cost-effective and we offer convenient UK-wide delivery, with a next day delivery service available if required. Last and by no means least, we’re happy to send free product samples so you’ll be able to try-before-you-buy. 

Why make the switch to plastic free alternatives?

Choosing our products over single use oil based plastic disposables is an effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. This is becoming increasingly important because when you consider that of the plastic that’s produced, the majority is made for just one use before being thrown away. 

Plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade and as most ends up in landfill, incinerated or as plastic pollution in the environment, it’s clear that something has to change. 

Choosing disposable cups which are made from plants and not plastics might seem like a small step to take. However, the more of us who make small steps such as this, the greater the result will be. 

It’s our mission to make choosing sustainable alternatives to single use plastics as hassle-free and affordable as possible. Our eco takeaway cups offer great value for money and because they’re either fully compostable or biodegradable, when you use them you’ll be reducing your carbon footprint as well as helping the environment.
