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.

Vegware Pots & Vegware Products
Our vegware products are ideal for use by catering and events businesses, coffee shops, takeaways, food stalls or for entertaining at home. Offering high quality, performance and great design, the products we sell include vegware portion pots, coffee cups and cold cups, takeaway cartons, plates, cutlery, food wrap and much more.
At Single Use Alternatives we understand that catering and food businesses rely upon a cheap and convenient supply of single use, disposable plastic items. Although eco friendly alternatives are available, they have often cost historically more and can be difficult to source in realistic quantities. Our user-friendly, fully-secure website offers something different, with affordable pricing, discounts on bulk orders and convenient UK-wide delivery. In addition, because we don’t set a minimum order value, you’ll be able to order in quantities which work for you: whether you need 100s or 1000s of vegware pots.
Why make the switch to vegware?
Alongside our mission to make it as simple and affordable as possible to ditch single use plastics, it’s our aim to provide information on sustainable alternatives. Why are we doing this? When you consider that since plastic was first commercially manufactured, more than 8 billion tons has been produced and of this, over 6 billion tons is now in landfill or plastic pollution in the environment. To further compound the problem, plastic can take more than 400 years to degrade. Something needs to be done and we’re hoping that by helping reduce your impact on the environment, it’ll be a big win for you and the planet.
Vegware plant based PLA products are made from renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials. Once a vegware item is no longer required, it can be commercially composted with food waste, where accepted by your local council. When composted in this way, disposable catering waste is turned into high quality compost which, in turn can be used in agriculture and horticulture to nourish the soil and grow healthy plants. Alternatively, some vegware items can also be composted in your home compost bin, however, the process will take longer as it depends on environmental conditions and the method you use.
