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 and eco friendly alternatives to disposable plastics

Alternatives to single use, disposable plastics are now widely available but they tend to cost more and might not be as sustainable as they seem. Our products are different and because they can be comparable in cost to single use plastics, provide a viable alternative for takeaways, catering businesses and coffee shops who are looking for ways to reduce their impact upon the environment. We believe that our products offer the best of both worlds: affordability and sustainability.

The products we sell are ideal for packing all types of takeaway food and drink, whilst also being perfect for entertaining or catering at home. With products designed for hot drinks such as coffee cups, lids and stirrers, through to cold cups and straws, our range will help you serve or deliver drinks to your customers. In addition, we also supply a wide range of food grade packaging products, suitable for everything from sandwiches, pizzas and cakes, through to salad bowls, alternatives to plastic cutlery and more.

How to recycle our eco friendly packaging products

Our products are all entirely plastic-free and made from plant based materials instead. This means that they are either biodegradable or compostable and are clearly labelled so you and your customers, will know how to dispose of them after use.

Compostable items can either be recycled by your local council as part of a food waste collection service, or in your compost bin at home (this can take up to twelve months in a well managed compost). Biodegradable food packaging needs to be recycled in special industrial composting facilities and at present this isn’t available in all areas, so please check the situation where you live.

Why go plastic-free?

Thanks to global publicity covering the problems caused by plastic pollution, increasing numbers of us are looking for alternative solutions. Plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade and when you consider that most of the plastic that’s ever been produced still exists in some form, something has to be done.

Although alternatives to single use plastic catering products are available, they tend to be more expensive and difficult to source. We offer something different: a wide range of realistically priced items which are simple to order for convenient delivery direct to your home or business. In addition, we don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to order in quantities which are right for you: whether that’s 100s or 1000s.
