Honest Tea has been doing an experiment the last few years in Seattle to see just how honest we really are when no one appears to be looking.
From now until mid-August, the company will set up an unmanned kiosk stocked with their beverages in various locations. Consumers can choose to pay $1 on the honor system or take a bottle with no consequences. It’s a light-hearted social experiment to see what people will do when they think no one is looking. Last year, 96% of the participants paid up – a big improvement from 2014, in which only 92% of participants paid. This year’s results will be announced in August.
All money collected is donated to charity.
You can view full details on their Website on the most honest and least honest cities across America. You can also see if men or women are more honest generally.
So, what do you think? How honest will we be this year?
