I've been searching for natural gum. My daughter loves to chew it. She likes Glee and Xylichew but I would rather avoid the plastics. I've already spoken to the Peppersmith people. They are so nice. But yeah not in the US...yet! Though what my daughter really wants is stick gum. Why oh why is stick gum so bleeping toxic? They usually have 2 or 3 artificial sweeteners along with preservatives and other horrid stuff. I don't get it. Why is stick gum harder to make natural than pellet gum? What am I missing here? I can't find stick gum even with borderline ingredients and rotten packaging. It's all just awful beyond words. If you have an extra sample, I'd love for my daughter to try it. Just one or two pellets is fine, I don't need a whole package. If she really likes it, I'll find a way to get it. Thanks!

Thank you Beth for this important post. I appreciate that you look at context and culture instead of passing judgment on people who make different decisions from you. I saw this in your post about disability (which can generate so much more plastic, use more gas for transport, use more electricity, and so on) and I see it here. The real problem we have is that we're presented these issues as personal choice (bring your own bag or use plastic). It's the corporate culture and what is allowed as the default that should change. In the meantime, us individuals make the best choices we can.
