Just Ice Tea

Eat the Change® is a Bethesda, MD based snack company created by activist entrepreneur Seth Goldman and celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn. They’re on a mission to create chef-crafted and nutrient dense snacks that are kind to the planet. 

All Just Ice Tea varieties are certified organic. This means we commit to a third-party verification process that ensures our ingredients are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and fertilizers. Did you know that tea leaves are one of the few agricultural products that are never rinsed? If chemicals are sprayed on tea leaves during the growing process, the chemicals get washed into the hot tea during the brewing process.

Fair Trade Certified™ tea leaves and sweeteners ensure safe, healthy working conditions and fair wages for farming communities. For each pound of fair ingredients we purchase, we pay a premium that goes directly to the workers for them to reinvest in their communities. The workers democratically vote on how the money is spent, empowering the workers, especially the women (who form the majority of tea pluckers), with financial resources and a say in their future. Some fair trade projects include: eyecare for an entire village, water access for an entire village, a playground and a science classroom for a village school.
