Most chewing gums contain plastic as "chewing mass". Forest Gum shows that there is another way.
Thanks! With your search on Gexsi you support the following project this week:
Forest Gum – plastic-free chewing gum
Gexsi supports the crowdfunding campaign of the ethical start-up Forest Gum. Forest Gum does not use artificial flavours, chemical additives or, above all, plastic as a chewing mass. Instead, the chewing gum is made from the juice of the chicle tree. This avoids plastic waste and helps protecting the rainforests of Central America where it is sustainably harvested.
