14: Gum Disposal System (Phase 2)The gumball machine business is going down the tubes (literally…..bahaha). Instead of throwing them into our ever-expanding landfills, let’s repurpose them to fight against the problem they caused! If people had a special fun place to put their old gum, they would probably feel more inclined to do so. In phase two, amazing artists will beautify old gumball machines into funky pieces of art to place their recyclable wrappers of gum (see phase 1) in. Place the ‘art’ next to every garbage bin, add in an incentive plan for good measure (i.e. for each piece of gum disposed properly, the city will put 5 cents towards some fab environmental cause), and there you go -sidewalk beautification for all!
