This is a very different sort of Chewing Gum; with all the right sort of taste and texture you are used to it also offers a much healthier chew both for you, as there are no artifical sweeteners at all, and for the planet, as it is totally biodegradable and will not add to the unsightly gum residue you can see on most streets, stations and shopping centres. Additionally by buying this gum you are helping to support an independent rainforest community.

The people of the Mayan rainforest in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, known as chicleros, have been sustaining the natural resources of the rainforest for over a century. About 2,000 chicleros live in an area of rainforest about 1.3 million hectares wide. These Mayan people have survived political control to become an independent community, so to help build up the economy they decided to manufacture the Chicza gum. Not only did they want to prove that they could survive as a people, but they also wanted to show that gum could be 100% natural and waste-free.
