I’m not a gum chewer because of issues with my jaw, so I never really thought about how it could impact the environment. I always thought of it in the category of “food” – but then – it isn’t something we swallow and digest, it ends up in the garbage. So – is chewing gum bad for the environment?

I’m really impressed by the Gumdrop Bin, a UK invention, where people can dispose of their gum and it gets recycled – and the bin is made from recycled gum! How cool is that? Now we just need to bring it over to North America!
Do you chew gum? Would you try a biodegradable brand?
