Lemonaid: Authentic and organic soft drinks from a consciously-aware brand

Nothing quite quenches the thirst during the summer months like a good fizzy drink. So it’s refreshing, in more ways than one, to have discovered Lemonaid while browsing in the supermarket recently.

Lemonaid make soft drinks using organic ingredients and without the use of any additives or artificial flavours. Lemonaid’s product range includes Blood Orange, Ginger, Lime and Passion Fruit. The flavours are fresh-tasting and authentic, just as you would expect a homemade batch of fizzy drink to turn out.

What’s also special about Lemonaid is that each drink comes in a small glass bottle, which are great to use around the home for upcycling projects. The Lemonaid website even has cool suggestions for how you can upcycle the cute bottles.

Soft drinks, manufactured by the big drinks companies, have come under attack in recent years due to their high sugar content and artificial ingredients. Fortunately, there are now a myriad of options when it comes to soft drinks that are made from real ingredients championed by independent companies like Lemonaid.

Lemonaid also supports fair, dignified farming. As a Fairtrade-certified business, Lemonaid helps local farmers so they can afford to make improvements to their own living conditions and implement community projects within their area.

Lemonaid say: “Honest soft drinks are actually very easy to produce. Simply mix pure juice with a little cane sugar and sparkling water – done! We never use any additives or artificial flavours; why improve on perfection? That’s how it’s done across the globe, from smiling Sri Lankan juice-wallahs at beaches to suburban children with stands on the pavement. Then one day the lightbulb went on. What if, instead of making lemonade for pocket money, like those children, we make it for a good cause?”

The Hamburg-based brand aims to help people and communities to help themselves by support inglocal initiatives which work to improve social, economic and ecological structures.

With each bottle of Lemonaid sold, 5 cents/pence is donated the company’s charity arm, The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation. The foundation currently supports 27 local initiatives in Africa, Asia and Latin America, ensuring that every person has access to independent, self-determined and sustainable livelihoods.
