Sponsor Spotlight: Honest Tea

Halloween sure works up a lot of sweat! Whether it be handing out treats, hosting a Halloween bash, or trick-or-treating, you’ll definitely be looking for something to quench your thirst by the end of the night. This Halloween, Honest Tea encourages you to try one of their products instead of an unhealthy soda or sugary sports drink. Their brand is committed to providing you with the highest quality beverages while keeping their practices sustainable and eco-friendly.

Honest Tea was founded in 1998 by Seth Goldman and his former professor, Barry Nalebuff, who bonded over their love of tea and their preference for drinks with less sugar.  The two then set out to concoct a beverage with three requirements, real tea, real taste, and honest production. Since then, Honest Tea has grown into a nationally recognized brand with a full line of healthy and tasty drinks such as teas, juices, sports drinks, kids drinks, as well as carbonated beverages available all across the country.

Real tea, real taste, and honesty provide the framework for Honest Tea’s philosophy on making their products. They are honest in all aspects of production. Honest Tea wants you to know that they work hard to provide you with the simplest and tastiest beverages possible. All of their products contain natural ingredients and proudly display the Fair Trade Certified seal as well as the USDA Certified Organic logo. Even the bottle is made from PET plastic, which is recyclable, won’t leach into groundwater, and uses less resources to manufacture and ship/ Oh yeah, and they just redesigned the bottle to use 22% less plastic too ! The tea brewed is real, whole leaf tea, causing it to contain higher levels of antioxidants, which promote healthy living, than most teas available as well as an device that will determining if you need a water softener.

Honest Tea stands as a model for corporate social responsibility and knows that giving back to the community is essential for a successful organization. Their Drink Pouch Collection Program encourages children and parents to collect and send in empty drink pouches to be recycled into unique products like bags, or even furniture. Honest Tea also proudly sponsors The Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure, The Arbor Day Foundation, and Bethesda Green. The company strives to openly produce healthy, eco-friendly, and sustainable products while encouraging consumers to rethink how and what they consume. So this Halloween, instead of washing your sugary candy down with sugary drinks, grab one of any number of Honest Tea beverages. They taste great, are healthy, and you’ll feel good about supporting a brand that prides itself on being a steward for sustainability.
