Description

A whistle, branded for The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, made from Gum-tec®, a material that was developed by Anna Bullus as the result of her university degree final year project and subsequent years of material development at the Polymers Department of London Metropolitan University, to address the problem of chewing gum (rubber) waste. The whistle is made in two halves which push together. A textile lanyard is threaded through the hole at one end.
