Honest Tea sees how many people pay $1 for drink at unmanned kiosk in downtown Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Did you pass the honesty test in downtown Louisville on Tuesday?

Organic beverage company Honest Tea set up a social experiment near 5th and Main Streets.

An unmanned kiosk was stocked with the bottled drinks. They were offered for $1 on the honor system.

The company is keeping track of who pays and who doesn't.

"The average is usually about 90 percent or higher," said Melissa Cerda-Richards, a regional marketing manager for Honest Tea. "Last year, the national average was 94 percent. So really good. It kind of gives you a little hope for everybody."

In 2014, Louisville tied for 4th place as one of the most honest cities.

It's happening in 26 cities across the country this year.

The results will be released Aug. 23.
