About Simply Gum

We started Simply Gum because we wanted a gum that was natural and delicious. A gum that we’d be proud to chew and proud to share.

It turns out that regular chewing gum is made of a plastic base and filled with questionable substances like aspartame and BHT. Consumers are kept in the dark because the FDA allows brands to hide synthetic ingredients in the catch-all term "gum base" on the label.

We knew we could do better.

And so we created a line of chewing gum, followed by a line of breath mints, that reflect our core values: Real ingredients, delicious flavors, and beautiful packaging.

We hope you like them as much as we do. www.simplygum.com

Packaging Spotlight: Carlsberg to launch world’s first biodegradable beer bottle



Carlsberg unveils latest Carlsberg Circular Community initiative at World Economic Forum in Davos. New Community partners also announced.

DAVOS, 22nd January, 2015 – In the context of its participation in a panel on Wasteless Supply at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Carlsberg today announced a ground-breaking agreement to develop the world’s first fully biodegradable wood-fiber bottle for beverages.

Carlsberg has initiated a three-year project with packaging company ecoXpac, with the collaboration of Innovation Fund Denmark and the Technical University of Denmark, to develop a biodegradable and biobased bottle made from sustainably sourced wood-fiber, to be known as the “Green Fiber Bottle”.

All materials used in the bottle, including the cap, will be developed using bio-based and biodegradable materials – primarily, sustainably sourced wood-fibers – allowing the bottle to be responsibly degraded.

Commenting on the announcement from Carlsberg HQ in Copenhagen, Andraea Dawson-Shepherd, Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs, said: “At Carlsberg we are firm believers in the importance of a circular economy in ensuring sustainable future growth and development on our planet, and today’s announcement is excellent news. If the project comes to fruition, as we think it will, it will mark a sea-change in our options for packaging liquids, and will be another important step on our journey towards a circular, zero-waste economy.”

This latest initiative forms part of the Carlsberg Circular Community (CCC), a cooperation between Carlsberg and selected partners whose aim is to pursue a circular, zero-waste economy by using the Cradle to Cradle® (C2C®) framework when developing and marketing new products. The CCC currently comprises six founding partners, with two new partners, ecoXpac and 1HQ (a global branding agency), announced today. Its goal is to have 15 partners by 2016.

Concept Cellphone Uses Sugary Drinks For Energy Source

A concept phone utilizes sugary drinks as the power source for a cellphone, making the battery biodegradable

I’ve been trying to quit soda for the past few weeks thanks to too many hours on Reddit and constant streams of photos that displayed how much sugar was in a can of Coke. As a result, there are untouched cans of soda sitting my fridge with no one to claim them, but it felt irresponsible if I just gave them to the kids next door. If only this eco-friendly concept cellphone existed. The design, by China-based Daizi Zheng, claims that a Nokia phone could be powered solely on sugary drinks. Now there’s an interesting use of leftover Coke that’s much more excitable than cleaning the rust off my pennies.

According to Zheng’s thesis, the phone would contain a chemical board that can form a reaction to utilize sugar enzymes and carbohydrates and convert them into electric power. The phone would work with most sugary drinks; in fact, more sugar means longer battery life. When the sugar and carbs are all used up as battery, you’re left over with a liquid that’s biodegradable, and the phone can be cleaned, refilled, and reused once again.

“Bio-batteries are fully biodegradable and have, on a single charge, a potential life-span three to four times longer than conventional lithium batteries,” Zheng writes on his website. Keep in mind, however, this design would be used with a basic, barebone phone, so no sticky touchscreen and apps here.

Coke powered nokia phone leftover liquidSince the design aims to be environmentally-friendly, it’s probably better to use straight sugar water than Coke or other packaged sodas, considering how they tend come in plastic bottles or cans — both of which are already pretty expensive to recycle. Still, it would be cool if the phone doubled as a drink bottle so you can choose to either gulp your soda or conserve it for more phone battery. This rationale would force the user to pick between drinking an unhealthy beverage or forgo it for the sake of your gadget’s usability. However, since the sugar disappears as the phone uses up the battery, it is unlikely that the soda you do end up drinking from the phone would taste any good. We also have to wonder if the fizzy noise would interfere with your sugar high calls.

It’s an interesting approach at multi-purposing a notorious food item, and such a gadget would make a neat science experiment for kids to learn about the wonders (and potential harms) of what sugary drinks means to them, and the chemical world.

Bio-Degradable Coca Cola Bags Replace Iconic Bottle

A new Coca Cola bottle design throughout Central America is actually a plastic bag. This helps keep costs down and is good for the environment!

We all know the iconic Coca Cola bottle, which, to be honest, looks like a curvy model, with its unique contouring and shape. However, what many people do not know is that rather than drink Coca Cola out of these bottles, many men and women throughout Central America actually drink Coca Cola out of a plastic sandwich bag. Why is this? Simply put, the cost of the bottle itself plus the fee for recycling raises the price, making it too expensive for even the most addicted Coca Cola drinkers.

In an effort to provide an easier way to drink…and promote further branding, Coca Cola has come up with “The Coca Cola Bag.” This bag is in the same shape of the bottle but made out of plastic that is bio-degradable and therefore eco-friendly (way to go Coca Cola). The bag is able to lock in the fizz and provides a more interesting drinking experience. Furthermore, men and women do not have to pay for the bottle, which includes the recycling fee.
