GT’s Living Foods

GT’s CEO and founder GT Dave wrote online, “Being a gay teenager in the ‘90s was not easy. I was picked on, called names, and treated like an outcast. I suffered from extreme depression and eventually dropped out of high school. Luckily, I found solace in making kombucha, giving me a sense of purpose and helping me carve out my own destiny.” This month, GT’s will donate a portion of sales from their SYNERGY Trilogy kombucha to the It Gets Better Project, a program Dave wished was around in his teenage years.
