|Seth Goldman Co-founder, Honest Tea|
|How American consumers communicate their values through purchasing is a topic of increasing attention. Businesses in the US, including the Bethesda-based Honest Tea, which was co-founded by Seth Goldman in 1998, have the capacity to influence such conversations. Honest Tea—which is committed to giving back to the communities from which it sources its products—has paid more than $1.5 million in premiums since 2003 to the Fair Trade, organic tea and sugar sourcing communities around the world. Fair Trade Communities are, then, empowered to use those funds for projects such as clean cook stoves, schools and ambulances, mechanized farm equipment, and more. Goldman will speak to these issues and more as he explores what it means to be an American businessman in the global economy.|
