On Thursday, August 15th from 11 AM - 6 PM, we're thrilled to be hosting the Honest Tea Great Recycle Tour at Whole Foods Market Kirby. The team from Honest Tea will be bringing several bins for you to recycle your plastic/glass bottles, and for your recycling efforts, you'll receive tickets to redeem at their prize booth. And of course, they'll be serving up ice cold samples of your favorite Honest Tea flavors!
