Lemonaid & Charitea

Lemonaid makes soft drinks the right way – taking only the finest organic ingredients to create a drink that tastes great and supports fair trade. Part of the Lemonaid family, ChariTea produces iced tea, once again using the best, organic ingredients that support fair trade. Collectively, they form the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation – a charitable foundation that’s committed to inciting and shaping the process of social change.

Every bottle of Lemonaid and ChariTea that is sold also contributes to a higher cause. Their goal is to support local projects that improve social, ecological, and economic structures in parts of the world which in global economic developments have placed at a significant disadvantage. Therefore, five cents for every bottle sold is donated to the not-for-profit charitable organization “Lemonaid and ChariTea e.V.”

The ingredients are organic and are sourced from small-scale farming cooperatives all around the world. Both Lemonaid and ChariTea rely on Fair Trade. They pay higher prices for their raw ingredients and therefore support fair and humane agriculture.

The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation

The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation was established ten years ago in 2010. The non-profit organization makes its home in St. Pauli, Hamburg, and it’s here that both Lemonaid and ChariTea originated. The purpose of the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation is to effect positive change in regards to the sustainable improvement of social, ecological, and economic structures in the Global South.

A particular focus is on regions where the various structures of the global economy have had a negative impact. By introducing economic freedom to people living and working in these regions, such problems can be easily rectified. The goal of the foundation is to assist these communities in acquiring and building up the resources necessary to achieve economic freedom.

The responsibility and ownership for the implementation of projects sit with the local partners. There is also a great deal of emphasis on entrepreneurial and income-generation initiatives as well as ways to encourage and support these initiatives. Both one-off projects and long-term partnerships are actively supported by these initiatives with a drive to push for real economic independence.

To achieve these goals, funding is needed, and much of this comes from the sale of Lemonaid and ChariTea drinks. Donations and active participation also help greatly.

A Brighter Future

By selling Lemonaid and ChariTea, you’re helping to change the world with each drop. ChariTea sources its whole-leaf tea from cooperatives and plantations around the world. For instance, rooibos grows under the hot South African sun, and for green and black teas, the Sri Lankan mountains are a common source.

Lemonaid are currently supporting local initiatives in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, with more than 20 currently active projects. These projects all have one singular goal – each person must have access to livelihoods which are independent, self-determined, sustainable.

The Lemonaid and ChariTea teams actively engage with local communities, making regular visits to learn about where the ingredients come from as well as their hidden stories. Since January 2010, the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation has raised over €4,000,000.
