Celebrating diversity on Instagram
The previous postings in this series took Kombucha companies to task for the images they post to their Instagram accounts. We noted the lack of diversity in many of the accounts, and looked at prevalence of sexually suggestive photographs.
This post highlights the kombucha accounts that celebrate diversity. We searched out pictures that show other kombucha lovers than those who practice yoga or loll around on the beach.
This collage is a sample of the pictures we found on a number of Instagram accounts. They show people of different ages and races enjoying kombucha. Some of are customers, others relatives of the founder. They are, however, the exception to the rule. They are few and far between. Which makes them all the more powerful for being so rare, so exceptional.
On Instagram, every picture tells a story. Clicking through to read the text tells us more about the picture than the thumbnail alone.
Here’s the story behind some of the ones we’ve included in the collection above.
Young and old
