Chewing Gum is a single use plastic

 

 

85% of consumers don’t know chewing gum contains plastic.

 

Did you know that chewing gum is a single use plastic?

 

We didn’t, but it does.

 

Each piece of gum contains as much plastic as a drinking straw, so it’s great to see a British business doing something about it.

 

Nuud was founded in the UK by Keir Carnie and is a plant based chewing gum. They were rejected by the Dragons on BBC’s Dragons Den and have since gone on to secure £750K investment from Jamie Laing’s Candy Kittens earlier this month.

 

They started their journey in Waitrose and within 6 months had sold £100K of plant based chewing gum.

 

We are inspired by their solution fixing single use plastic.

 

If you haven’t heard of them take a look and buy their gum, now also available in the UK in Co-op as of this week!
