Honest Tea, Inc.

Part of the #FairTradeDifference since 2003


Since 2003, Honest Tea has contributed more than $1 million in Community Development Funds through Fair Trade.

Honest Tea believes in transparent relationships with their supplier communities and extending economic opportunities to communities in need. Since launching their first ready-to-drink bottled tea made with Fair Trade Certified™ tea leaves in 2003, Honest Tea has contributed more than $1 million in Community Development Funds. Those funds help enable farmers to invest in schools and hospitals, as well as farming equipment that can help increase economic self-sufficiency.

To learn more about the source of their Fair Trade sugar, co-founder and TeaEO Emeritus Seth Goldman traveled to Paraguay to meet farmers who grow organic and Fair Trade sugar cane. Watch the video here:
