Super gross, yeah? We agree. There's sadly a long list of artificial ingredients that companies are allowed to melt together and call "gum base" on their packaging. This ends up making most chewing gum a one-use plastic product and a big environmental pollutant. That's why we're fully committed to being 100% PLASTIC FREE!
Functional ingredients are awesome. Some can boost your energy, some can help you sleep, heck some can even clean your teeth! To make life more convenient for you, we're creating gum lines with all natural functional ingredients inside.
At our core, we place the utmost value on being sustainable and reducing the impact of plastic on the planet. It's our belief that companies have an ethical duty and responsibility to create a better world with their products, not just better profits. In order to put our money where our mouth is, we'll give back a portion of our profits/time/talent to help social and environmental impact initiatives focused on making the world a better place.
