Honest Tea

Turn a bag into a tree!

Honest Tea supported “Earth Month” in 2011 with a “Plant A Tree” program developed by GSG and executed at retail by multiple retailers. Consumers were incentivized to purchase multiple bottles of Honest Tea to “earn” an eco-friendly bag while also planting five trees per purchase. The program’s mission was to reforest regions hit by wildfires and disasters across the country.
