Government to ban non biodegradable chewing and bubble gum. Manufacturers to be shamed into selling only biodegradable chewing products
Why is this important?
It is estimated that 374 billion pieces of gum are sold every year amounting to about 560,000 tonnes of gum of which some 80-90% is polluting streets, pavements, countryside and damaging the environment. Like plastic is found in fish. Biodegradable gum is available NOW. Why are we allowing this completely preventable, unhealthily and damaging pollution to continue any longer!!
