Today, Honest Tea is the nation’s top selling organic bottled tea, and is carried in more than 100,000 outlets. In March 2011, Honest Tea was acquired by The Coca-Cola Company, helping to further the reach and impact of Honest Tea’s mission. The company continues to deepen its relationship with Fair Trade certified suppliers in India, China, and South Africa. Honest Tea has initiated creative marketing partnerships with TerraCycle, Arbor Day Foundation and IndoSole, and was recently ranked by The Huffington Post as one of the leading "8 Revolutionary Socially Responsible Companies." Seth serves on the boards of Bethesda Green, Beyond Meat, the American Beverage Association, the state of Maryland’s Economic Development Commission and sits on the Advisory Boards of Net Impact and the Yale School of Management. In September 2013 Seth and Barry celebrated the release of their first business book told in comic book form-- Mission in a Bottle – The Honest Guide to Doing Business Differently – and Succeeding, which was published by the Crown Business division of Random House.
