Honest Tea: Donald Trump quote will be phased out from bottle caps

A quote by Donald Trump is being removed from Honest Tea's bottlecaps, but not because the company disagrees with his comments.

Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea, explained in a blog post that the company generally refreshes quotes underneath its bottle caps every 12 to 18 months.

"There is nothing objectionable to the thinking in Mr. Trump's quote, 'If you're going to think anyway, you might as well think big.' Indeed, it's certainly the mindset that we've brought to our business and our impact," Goldman wrote.

He said the newest wave of more than 100 quotes have already been sent off to the printers, which will include sayings by Anne Frank and Nelson Mandela.

"Honest Tea is a tea for all parties--we welcome anyone who wants to drink our organic iced teas because we know that when people choose organic and Fair Trade tea they are making an impact, regardless of their party affiliation," Goldman added.
