Non-stick, biodegradable chewing gum releases from surfaces and disintegrates in water, which contributes to environmental cleanliness. In countries where chewing gum removal in funded by taxes, such as the United Kingdom, non-stick, biodegradable chewing gum can reduce the amount of public money spent on cleanup.
Rev7 chewing gum, produced by Revolymer in the United Kingdom, is non-stick and biodegradable and has been sold in the United States since 2010. The chewing gum is made with food-grade ingredients that repel water while being chewed but attract water when the chewed gum is discarded. Chicza, which is located in Mexico, also produces non-stick, biodegradable chewing gum.
