"BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD”
I believe that a business must be responsible and caring for the people and the planet; creating products with zero waste. Because of this, and because of my children, I have chosen a small, but very lovely for kids’ product - chewing gum. Product with loads of benefits, but forbidden by many mothers because of its bad ingredients. In the kitchen of my home I made many experiments with different ingredients in order to create a natural chewing gum. After this mess I found a Mexican manufacturer of chicle - the main ingredient of a natural, biodegradable gum base. Now I have a delicious chewing gums with different flavors.
