The Intercultural Maya University of Quintana Roo (UIMQROO) is an incredible public university in Mexico. Chicle, the tree sap used in Glee Gum, is harvested sustainably from this region— often by family members of UIMQROO students.
We’ve seen first-hand how the harvest of non-timber forest products like chicle helps to conserve the rainforest. And we’ve seen how UIMQROO gives students the tools they need to create positive change socially, economically, and environmentally.
