Hands up who knows any other company founder that includes “Recovering Drug Addict” in their job title?
For Wes Hurt, the founder of Austin-based CLEAN Cause, his company is all about supporting others. Having survived the challenges of years of his own devastating alcohol and drug addiction, Hurt’s now in the business of providing sober living scholarships to support recovery in others. The 30-day scholarships are funded by 50% of the profits from sales of Yerba Mate, CLEAN Cause’s healthy sparkling canned drinks.

Why? Because it reminds me of a good time in my life.
