Waiakea Water, the Hawaii Volcanic Water
The bottled water industry is a $100 billion commercial enterprise and one bottled water company, Waiakea Water, based in Hawaii, is a standout company in a trade occupied by hundreds. Everything about Waiakea Water is unique which lends to its success. Founded in 2012, this Hawaiian company incorporates its culture into the bottling of this extraordinary water using the name Waiakea which comes from the Hawaiian words “wai akea” meaning broad waters.
Volcanic Water Benefits
The filtering process which creates the integrity and purity of this water is incomparable and distinctive of Hawaii because this water goes through 14,000 feet of metamorphic rock, which is porous volcanic rock. This bottled water is the first Hawaiian volcanic water ever sold. Its source is the Kea aquifer, which has a 1.4 billion gallon per day recharge so it is all natural coming from the Mauna Loa Volcano, containing electrolytes, minerals, and the Waiakea water pH has an 8.8 alkalinity.
Benevolent To The Environment, Waiakea Water Stands Out Among Its Competition
It’s unusual to find a bottled water company that cares about the environment as Waiakea Water does, that it takes the necessary precautions to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. Certified Carbon Neutral, Waiakea Water uses low-emission vehicles to deliver their products. In 2018, they began using the first biodegradable bottle, which is also 100 percent recyclable plastic. The plastic bottle that all bottled water businesses use takes more than a 1,000 years to degrade in the environment. But the plastic bottles Waiakea Water uses degrades completely in 15 years.
Waiakea Water Provides For Their Community
Nonprofit organizations and community programs receive three percent of Waiakea Water’s net income, contributing to the advancement of their community. Also, for every liter of Waiakea Water purchased, the company contributes a week’s supply of clean water to the underprivileged people in Malawi. Waiakea Water is truly benevolent to the planet.
