{Glee-ful Savings}

In honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day, readers can receive a special 15% savings on all Glee Gum products in the online web store! To take advantage of these special savings visit this special link {here} and enter the promo code ‘BLOG’ ~ Valid now through Arbor Day (April 29, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST).

Glee Gum is all-natural, gluten-free chewing gum made without artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners or preservatives. Glee Gum is the only gum in North America made the old-fashioned way, with chicle! Chicle is a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Not Glee! Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest. Chicle is also what gives the gum such great, long-lasting chewing texture! Glee Gum is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. It’s available in six sweet flavors, plus two new sugar-free varieties! Glee Gum makes a great addition to Easter baskets (Mini Glee Gum fits perfectly inside most plastic eggs).

Thanks to a partnership with Trees for the Future, Glee Gum will also plant a tree for every pack of gum that is purchased. Visit {this} special link to register your purchases online, and receive a handy, dandy certificate of gratitude
