Dark Side Of The Chew

Il lato oscuro della gomma da masticare
by Andrew Nisker 2014 61'

It's the world's second most common form of litter. It's invisible to most. Yet it lurks everywhere (including the bottoms of tables, desks and shoes). How did we become so addicted to chewing gum and how is our consumption of trillions of sticks a year impacting our health and our planet? Andrew Nisker travels our planet and speaks to gobs of manufacturers, activists and scientists to unravel the entertaining, yet shocking truth behind our obsession with a seemingly innocuous product that is gumming up more than just our environment.
