Simply Gum Natural Gum
When considering more sustainable, healthy food options we usually don’t think about our chewing gum. But did you know that most of the gum you chew contains plastic? Chewing gum was originally made from a natural latex tree sap called chicle, as well as other natural waxes. After World War II though, chemists figured out a way to mass produce gum using synthetic rubbers such as polyethylene, essentially plastic, and synthetic chemicals. Conscious consumers looking to steer clear of harmful plastics and chemicals often run into trouble because manufacturers aren’t required to go into any more detail than listing “gum base” on ingredient labels. Simply Gum was started to provide a better, healthier gum option. One derived from real ingredients that are both delicious and 100% natural. With no artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetics of any kind, each Simply Gum flavor—including such unique offerings as coffee, fennel, and maple—is made using just six natural ingredients. Conveniently packaged in a plastic-free, beautifully designed box, Simply Gum is a perfect choice for the chew-happy conscious consumer. Healthy chewing!
