From plastics to food waste, there is an ever-growing amount of materials that can be recycled. Now, a United Kingdom-based company, Gumdrop Ltd, has developed a new process called Gum-tec. With this new method you can recycle all types of chewing gum into new products, including wellington boots, mobile phone covers, stationary and packaging. Gumdrop claims that it currently costs around GBP 150 million a year to remove chewing gum litter from the UKs streets. The company hopes to reduce this by offering people a better way to dispose of their gum than throwing it on the ground.
