The Honest Tea stand in DC
On Tuesday, Honest Tea conducted a little social experiment to test the honesty level in various U.S. cities.
In twelve cities, the Bethesda-based company set up stands where bottled iced tea was available at $1 a pop, but there were no employees to monitor whether customers paid or not. There was, however, a live feed via webcam for each city where those who didn’t pay could be caught by the internet-viewing public.
The results are in, and by the standards of this little test, the city with the highest level of trustworthiness is Chicago, where a whopping 99 percent of people that took a bottle of tea paid for it. The test made DC look downright dishonest, though. The city’s pop-up stand was located in Dupont Circle, and only 91 percent of those who took a tea put $1 in the lock box, a percentage that ranked ahead of only Los Angeles and New York City.
