Choose plant based gum
Did you know that the main ingredient in regular chewing gum is plastic - the same plastic polymer found in car tyres? Ditch the toxics and switch to plant based chewing gum made from tree sap and flavoured with natural oils.
Chewing gum creates 100,000 tonnes of waste each year, and UK taxpayers pay circa £60 million to the authorities to clean up the street annually.Source
- It's made from plants, not plastic
- It's biodegradable
- Vegan Friendly
- Some natural gum brands still use wasteful packaging
- Still needs to be disposed of properly and not littered in streets
- Smaller range of flavours, which aren't as long lasting as artificial gum
Making a difference
The Natural Chewing Gum market is growing at 7.5% since 2018, with more brands like Bare Gum improving their selections.
