At Connecta we work hard to make sure the company is run in an ethical way with both concern for the environment and the people we work with. This is why we adore the new Gum-tec® snack boxes we have in stock.
So what is Gum-tec®?
Gum-tec® is made from recycled chewing gum waste ( from chewed gum coming from the Gumdrop bins and the Gumdrop On-the-go), as well as gum waste from manufacturers. This helps to provide a zero waste to landfill alternative for gum manufacturers wishing to lower or eliminate their waste gum output. This is then recycled and put through our new process in order to create a range of compounds for use in the plastics and rubber industry.
Gumdrop Ltd has been founded on a closed loop recycling process. Gum-tec® is used to manufacture the Gumdrop and Gumdrop on-the-go, pink receptacles designed specifically for the disposal of waste chewing gum. Gumdrops are bright pink and look like strawberry flavored bubble gum bubbles, a fun, colourful replacement for the common blank eyesore of the white splodge. Once the Gumdrop is full, the whole Gumdrop along with its contents of waste gum is recycled and processed to manufacture new Gumdrops, the cycle starts again.
Gumdrop Ltd also collaborate with manufacturers and companies globally to make products from recycled and processed chewing gum. With Gumdrop’s help, recycled and processed chewing gum can become a vast number of things from wellington boots, to mobile phone covers, stationary, packaging and much more.
The Gum-tec® Connecta Snack box is big enough to hold snacks for a whole day and can also be used as a lunch box with enough space for sandwiches and some small snacks.
It comes in Navy, Purple, Yellow, Pink or Orange and is a durable and environmentally friendly option which looks great! Buy yours online at the Connecta Baby Carrier shop for the perfect last minute stocking filler!
