Waiakea Water is Changing the Water Industry in Favor of the Planet
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water launched in 2012 and has grown exponentially, 5,000% to be exact. In 2015 alone they were able to add their product in almost 2,000 stores across the United States. Waiakea developed their water with health, charitable actions, and sustainability in mind
. They celebrated this expansion by opening another facility in Hawaii to manufacture the product. Waiakea has recognized a growing desire for their product and intend to meet the demand.
Waiakea water is on the mission to encourage people to drink ethically. They partnered with Pump Aid to donate clean water: 650 liters for every liter sold. Their donated water has reached rural and struggling areas of Africa.
One major thing that makes Waiakea stand out from other water companies in the world is the fact that they face the world differently. They are the first company to provide premium bottled water and be certified as CarbonNeutral®. Many people are opposed to bottled water, and, usually, it’s warranted. The bottles produce excessive amounts of pollution and garbage; many bottles aren’t recycled properly and spend their lives in land fills and trash piles. The way their bottles are produced creates ninety percent less emissions than traditional bottled water companies. Their packaging is created with recycled bottles
. Everything they do gives their customers the feelings of contributing to a better world and a brighter future.
Along with being sustainable and maintaining a focus on philanthropy, Waiakea water also provides many health benefits. The water comes from a naturally filtered and clean source, which includes minerals and is organically alkaline
. The Waiakea springs water is filtered naturally through volcanic rock
instead of machinery causing pollution. Another huge benefit to consuming this water is it naturally has the perfect amount of silica in it. Scientific studies have shown that consuming the correct amount of silica will reduce the chance of Alzheimer’s by eleven percent!
Two of the most popular stores that you can find this water at include Whole Foods and Wawa. They are starting to expand into other stores around the globe. The founders of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water have thought their product through and are always developing earth-friendly ways to provide the benefits of volcanic water to the world.
