One Minute Until Impact: Seth Goldman, TeaEO, Honest Tea

Our new video series brings you face-to-face with social enterprise leaders.


At GOOD, we're excited about the social enterprise sector. To help give budding social entrepreneurs a leg up—and give the rest of us an idea of how business that combine profit with social impact are changing the world—we've been talking to the folks behind the most successful companies in the impact economy and other stakeholders in the sector, from investors to designers. Every Friday, we'll give you one minute of insight with a key player in the field.

Our first interview is with Seth Goldman, co-founder and TeaEO of Honest Tea (a GOOD Company!) Honest Tea produces beverages that are organic and sustainable, and the company is widely recognized as a sustainable business leader. We asked him what lessons he learned guiding Honest Tea from its start in his home kitchen to a beverage giant with $71.5 million in sales, and talked about the importance of having a mission and the discipline it provides.
