“The Chewing Gum Man”

January 6, 2010

Above is one of Ben Wilson’s amazing gum arts! The artist, also known as “The Chewing Gum Man”, turns eyesore discarded chewing gum into something good to look at! Certainly one answer to the problem of chewing gum litter I say! Check out more of his work here.

Solving the gum litter problem

Introducing gummy bins!

“Solving the chewing gum problem isn’t about cleaning gum off pavements. It’s about changing people’s behaviour so that they will put their gum in a bin.

Gummy Bins® is a breakthrough in solving the chewing gum problem. It’s about prevention, not cure. It’s appealing and quirky. It’s fun and different! And it has serious and proven effects.”

Example of one of their bins:

Gummy Street®

  • High traffic areas, gathering places, city centres, schools, etc
  • High risk security areas (with the clear cover)
  • Indoor and outdoor use
  • Informal, everyday use
  • 500 piece high capacity cartridge
  • Available with a Granite finish in black, stone and light grey.

Chewing gum Truck

Came across this image of a chewing gum truck, which looks exactly how I want my magazine to look – a large scaled chewing gum packet:

It even has that elusive foil I need to get hold of.. if anyone knows where to get some let me know! (it’s the foil which is shiny on one side but paper on the inside)

So just how is gum made..
