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.
