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. 

 Recommended by Isabel M.

"The flavour doesn't last as long as a regular plastic chewing gum, but otherwise performs the same. It comes in many flavours and I found peppermint, ginger and maple in my local Iceland supermarket."

Where to Buy...
