About Us

At Eat the Change, we’re on a mission to help consumers “Eat (and Drink) the Change they wish to see in the world,” starting with our main product line: Just Ice Tea.

Launched in fall 2022 through Eat the Change, Just Ice Tea™ now offers nine varieties of unsweetened and just sweet enough teas made with clean, easily recognizable ingredients. Through its commitment to fair trade, Just Ice Tea helps provide a more just, healthier way of life for our farmers and our planet—and healthier options for you. This is Just Ice Tea, but it’s also so much more.
