Have you ever noticed how our towns, cities, streets, parks, schools, cinemas, trains, planes and theme parks are being taken over by random white splodges? Have you ever taken the time to stop and look at exactly what these splodges are? These splodges are a product of irresponsible chewing gum disposal. These white splodges may look like worthless waste but that does not mean they are cheap. It costs councils £150 million pounds a year to remove chewing gum litter from our streets in the UK. There are organisations that can provide a service to our society, the infrastructure and the startup packs. http://gumdropltd.com/new-freshers-week-packs/ To complement this we need to raise awareness and encourage change of behaviour. I thought starting in September 2017 with Students of Anglia Ruskin engaging at freshers week, would require funding for example startup pack, engagement with City and county councils to allow installations on street furniture and resources.
