We were shocked when we found out the truth about regular gum. We had so many questions, and we’re sure you do too!
Regular chewing gum is a single-use plastic!
Yep, most gum brands quietly contain plastics (such as Polyethylene, one of the main compounds found in shampoo and water bottles), hidden under the phrase 'gum base' within their ingredients. Regular gum will outlive you, and pollute our planet!
At Nuud, we don't use a plastic gum base, instead we use a sustainably harvested tree sap called Chicle. Our gum is plastic free, plant based and biodegradable.
