Vegware hot cups from Single Use Alternatives

OurVegware product range includes everything you need to serve and package takeaway food and drinks. From Vegware hot cups, lids and stirrers, through to takeaway cartons, deli pots and more, switching to Vegware is a win for you and for the planet. 

We understand that for many catering and hospitality businesses, it’s important to have access to a cheap and easily-available supply of disposable cups, pots and cutlery etc. However, when you consider that the majority of plastic waste either ends up in landfill or as pollution in the environment, and that plastic can take up to 400 years to fully degrade, something has to be done. Choosing sustainable products such as Vegware, is a great way to make a difference and although it might seem like a relatively small step to take, the more of us who make the change, the bigger the difference. 

At Single Use Alternatives we know that many businesses are deterred from choosing sustainable alternatives to single use plastics, as eco-friendly products have historically been  more expensive and difficult to source in realistic quantities. It is our aim to offer something different and you’ll find that our products are cost-effective and can be comparable in price. With bulk discounts available, the more you buy the more you save, with savings of up to 20% on wholesale prices. We don’t set a minimum order value so you’ll be able to order in quantities which are right for your business: whether you need 100 vegware hot cups or 1000s! Last and by no means least, our website is fully secure, with easy account management, re-ordering and next day delivery if required. 

How to recycle Vegware hot cups

Although many Vegware products might look like plastic they are entirely plastic free. As such, they shouldn’t be recycled with other plastic waste but disposed of by composting. Compostable disposables such as Vegware hot cups and all other Vegware products, are designed to be recycled by your local council in an industrial composting facility along with food waste. This helps to make Vegware incredibly convenient to use, as there’s no need for sorting as the entire pot, cup or box can be composted together, without having to remove any leftover food waste. 

When composted in an industrial composting facility, Vegware products take up to 90 days to fully degrade. However, although Vegware items can be recycled in your garden compost bin, the process will take longer as it depends on environmental conditions and the method you use.
