The first front-end solution in the world to recycle waste chewing gum and convert it into products
DID YOU KNOW
Chewing Gum Litter is a problem that costs society millions every year?
Gumdrop offers a preventive and educational circular solution for a worldwide issue.
Have you ever noticed how our towns, cities, streets, parks, schools, cinemas, trains, planes and theme parks are being taken over by random white splodges? These white splodges may look like worthless waste but that does not mean they are cheap. It costs councils across the UK alone £60 million pounds a year to remove chewing gum litter from our streets. Gumdrop offers a solution and a new outlook on the potential of chewing gum.
Chew, Collect and Renew
Gumdrop Ltd has been founded on a closed loop recycling process. Gum-tec® is used to manufacture the Gumdrop Bin and Gumdrop on-the-go, pink receptacles designed specifically for the disposal of waste chewing gum. Once the Gumdrop is full, the whole Gumdrop along with its contents of waste gum is recycled and processed to manufacture new Gumdrops, the cycle starts again
Educating the world about gum waste's potential
Individuals are barely aware of the potential chewing gum waste has. We aim to deliver innovation on a global scale.
To educate users about the possibilities of chewing gum litter, we collaboratewith manufacturers and companies globally in order to offer innovative products. With Gumdrop’s help, recycled and processed chewing gum can become a vast number of things from wellington boots, to mobile phone covers, stationary, packaging and much more.
Inspiring the public to give gum a second life
We inspire to change behaviour in how we dispose our chewing gum to inspire behaviour change and promoting a path to a cleaner greener place.
