MINIMAL WASTE | GIVES BACK | SUSTAINABLE | VEGAN
It’s time to stop chewing on rubbish and go old-school with a new natural, plant-based, zero-waste chewing gum without artificial sweeteners, synthetics or plastic (both in the gum and the pack).
Did you know that most chewing gums contain plastic and synthetic rubber? It’s a scary thought when you consider putting it in your mouth! And then realise that all those plastic gums still exist somewhere!
As avid chewers themselves, the Sydney-based team from Swell Gum were horrified by this revelation and frustrated they couldn’t find alternatives. So they set about making an all-natural gum guided by traditional methods using sapodilla tree sap (or chicle) from Central America.
And so, inspired by their love of the ocean – with the plastic epidemic in mind – a plant-based chewing gum was born - that’s Swell! All-natural, plastic-free, biodegradable (both gum and pack) and teeth-friendly (sugar-free with Xylitol for fighting plaque), you can now mindfully chew away to your heart’s content!
Plus it helps to know that 25% of profits are directed towards marine conservation charities. Surf’s up!
Swell's flagship product is the peppermint 10-pack and currently the only product they offer for delivery. It contains 10 of their biodegradable single-packets, with each packet containing 12 pieces of chewing gum without artificial sweeteners.
Swell Gum is, of course, sugar-free, but they go further. While other gums use cheap artificial sweeteners like aspartame or sorbitol, they use xylitol which is a natural sweetener and is great at fighting plaque.
ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Swell is really proud that all of their ingredients are naturally sourced. Their gum base and sweetener, but also their flavourings are all-natural so their chewers aren't putting any nasty synthetics in their mouths.

Most chewing gums are made using plastic and synthetic rubber - the ultimate single-use plastic. Swell uses natural chicle which is a tree sap harvested from the sapodilla tree in Central America.
Because Swell's gum is made of tree sap, it is biodegradable. But they also worked hard to develop eco-friendly packaging. Their pouches are made using recycled paper and bioplastic zip-locks meaning they're compostable too.
A core belief of Swell is that businesses need to give back to society beyond just paying their taxes. Being based in Sydney, they have an enormous connection to the ocean, and so it gives them great pleasure to direct 25% of their profits to marine conservation charities.
Swell Gum is proudly a 100% plant-based Vegan product and without artificial sweeteners.
