I recently came across Gumdrop, a great project from University of Brighton student, Anna Bullus. She like many of us was bothered by the sheer amount of gum that gets spat out on to our streets, so came up with a way to help stop it.

“I suddenly realised that chewing gum is already a rubber, and rubber can be recycled and made into stuff, so why not gum.” After eight months in the lab, Anna developed a process to extract a polymer that she calls BRGP (Bullus Recycled Gum Polymer).

Now Anna’s company, Gumdrop Ltd. is set to launch these pink bubble bins (made from recycled gum) around London. Once full, the bin and its contents will be recycled to produce all manner of plastic goods.
