Sustainable refreshment

There's more to being an environmentally sensitive beverage consumer than just using recyclable containers.

Take Adina World Beat Beverages. The San Francisco company has created a line of organic coffee and tea drinks using Fair Trade Certified ingredients such as cocoa, vanilla and coffee beans. Adina buys its ingredients from small-scale farmers and collectives in such countries as India, Guatemala, Indonesia and Ethiopia who support sustainable practices.

The drinks are available in such whimsically exotic flavors as Indian Iced Chai Latte, Ethiopian Iced Espresso, Mayan Iced Mocha and Sumatran Iced Vanilla Latte. Each is low in fat and held to 90 to 100 calories per bottle.
