A lot of us think a lot about our food choices, but what about what we drink? From energy and water usage to the grains and fruit used in the process, alcohol production has the potential to be a wasteful business. But there's no need for us to get an environmental hangover when we've got great businesses helping us raise a glass to a healthy, happy planet. Check out some of our favorite sustainable drinks below. Cheers!
