Actually made from recycled chewing gum! A street side bin specially designed for the disposal of the gum. Anna Bullus won with her ‘Gumnetic Bin’ the British Councils National Design Award for 2007. A whole new material from chewing gum and bio resin that has unique properties and characteristics some of which enable the formation of this product. The product offers a unique and practical solution to a widespread problem housed within an innovative sustainable process; the bin itself collects raw material in the form of discarded chewing gum from which to produce new bins. Please note ’commercial production ’has not started yet, approx. end 2008, as Anna Bullus is still developing it for the market.
