It's a result of dispersing energy (caused by the big bang.) If, for example, the universe was shrinking, order in the universe would increase and we would have anti-entropy. It's not just a matter of disorder, it's also homogeneity. For example, drop a drop of food coloring into a glass of water. At first, it is the most ordered (clear boundaries between color and water) but eventually due to dispersing energy, the two chemicals mix to form a singular entity.
