I do not consider kombucha a "luxury” [”Bottled in Bond,” Dec. 22 Xpress]. It is a health drink in many cultures and essential to my healthy lifestyle. If I were employed at a business where I was given two bottles as part of my wages, I would consider it a benefit.
Perhaps other local businesses could follow Buchi's lead and add Buchi as a healthy choice for their employees. I applaud Sarah and Jeannine for starting a health-oriented grassroots business.
