Waiakea Water – Saving Lives One Bottle at a Time

Waiakea water is a bottled water company that is very unique. Not only are they the first to bottle Hawaiian volcanic water, but they are very environmentally conscious as well.

In 2014 alone, about 650 million did not have access to a sanitary water supply.

They are also helping to get fresh water to third world countries such as Malawi and rural Africa. For every liter of water sold, they donate enough water to supplement people who need it in Malawi for an entire week. Their partnership with Pump Aid has made it possible to get clean drinking water to those who need it and have greatly reduced the number of illnesses and fatalities that occur daily in third world countries.

Waiakea water‘s pH is right around 8.2 which is why it has a slight sweetness to it. It also takes about 30 days to travel from the volcano which is what gives it an “aged” flavor, making it light, and crisp. It also has silica which makes every bottle taste silky smooth. The natural filtration process of Waiakea water makes it contaminant-free, and it has a nitrate level of .59 mg/l so in short-it naturally tastes great.

Every year, billions of water bottles are used, and many of them end up in landfills where they take as many as 1000 years to break down. Waiakea water bottles take only about 15 years to break down and are also made of recycled materials. Waiakea also uses low emission vehicles to transport their product.

Waiakea has partnered with Pump Aid in order to get clean drinking water to countries such as Malawi where there are people that do not have clean drinking water. Without clean water, there are many more illnesses and even deaths in areas of the world such as rural Africa and Malawi. Waiakea prides itself on its product and the good they are able to do.

Waiakea is very careful not to negatively impact the environment, and the company uses as much as 33 percent of renewable energy. It is also considered to be a CarbonNeutral company.

Waiakea Water Redefines Sustainability

Hawaii has one of the healthiest, natural and sustainable volcanic water sources in the world. As a result, Ryan Emmons after summer and winter experiences with his family at Hawaii decided to establish the bottled Hawaiian Volcanic water known as Waiakea Water, in 2012. Despite the water brand distributes its products to at least 50 states.

The water-brand bottles water that has a unique-flavor that guarantees its excellence. Volcanic water has for long been considered expensive. The Waiakea water with its unique taste has been trading at considerably lower price making it to be consumer-friendly brand.
How it’s Bottled
The water is single sourced from pristine source south west of Hilo town on the big highland of Hawaii. It’s filtered through thousands of feet of the Mauna Loa Volcano gives Waiakea a unique mineral composition, rich in sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Presence of silica gives the water its soft-silky-mouth-feel. The water is regularly treated for more incredible tests.

Sustainable Packaging

Waiakea water is acquired from a renewable sustainable-source. The aquifer which it’s sourced from has approximately 1.4 billion gallons of water. Its packaging is done in an environmental friendly manner. It is worth noting that Waiakea Water is among the very few bottled water and beverage brands in the world certified by CarbonNeutral.

The product is packed in high-grade 100 percent recycled polythene-terephthalate that uses 85 percent less energy to manufacture compared to other bottles. This greatly curbs the emission of carbon by 90 percent during manufacturing process as compared to traditional plastics. This may perhaps be among the primary reasons why Waiakea water is currently ranked among the top ten water brands globally according to 2017 statistics.

Waiakea Water and the Community

Waiakea’s partnership with Pump Aid has enhanced a direct charity dedicated to the community towards ensuring appropriate clean water supply. The charity supports many communities in Africa. More than 1.35 million people have gotten access to clean water and safe sanitation. This has greatly impacted the lives of people in the community. More than 500 million liters of water have been donated so far.
