It’s not your fault
Every public place - indoor or outdoor - suffers from a chewing gum problem. But it’s not the fault of the owner, landlord or tenant. It’s because people think it’s OK to drop gum. Why?
- “Everybody else does it”. That’s no excuse!
- “Waste gum isn’t litter”. Oh yes it is! Gum was officially reclassified as litter in April 2006 and can earn you an £80 fine if you’re caught.
- “If we don’t put bins out, people will have nowhere to put their gum. If there’s no where to put their gum, people won’t drop it.” Sorry again! People hate to swallow gum, so they’ll stick it on furniture, drop it down toilets and urinals, and find a thousand other places to hide it instead. Yuk!
We’d like to offer an alternative. How about offering your customers and visitors a convenient way to dispose of their gum, keep your premises in top condition, and make a positive contribution to the environment at the same time? Boots, the Earls Court & Olympia exhibition venues, Marks & Spencer, O2, Subway and many more discerning organisations have already decided to take up the Gummy Bins®’ offer.
Organisations who have already installed our bins are reaping tens of thousands of pounds in cost savings; creating a talking point for their customers with the novelty factor of the Gummy Bins®; and stealing a march on their competitors. Their premises are much more pleasant place without all the gum around – and they’re “doing their bit” for the environment which customers have great respect for. Best of all, Gummy Bins® is a “Made in Britain” invention so they’re supporting the UK economy too.
