Does gum cause pollution?

    Yes, gum causes pollution that is increasingly becoming more and more of a problem. The main reason for this is that chewing gum is made from petroleum-based polymers that are not biodegradable and not water soluble. So, the gum we discard remains for very very long periods of time. In addition, gum improperly disposed of on streets, sidewalks, and furniture is a huge cost to clean up. Therefore, in Europe efforts are currently underway to offer gum recycling bins that can instead use the materials for other purposes when people are done chewing.
