Alternative for: Plastic-wrapped chewing gum containing plastic
Did you know that chewing gum often contains plastic?! Most commercial gums use an elastomer which is a form of plastic. This plastic-free chewing gum by Simply Gum is made from all natural ingredients and available in the UK.
Packaging: Cardboard box
End of Life: Cardboard box is recyclable. Gum and wrappers are biodegradable, but probably not very quickly in a home composting environment.
