Waiakea bottled water is much more than just another bottled water brand. Waiakea stands for preservation, sustainability, and of course, natural drinking water. Waiakea water is doing all it can to reduce its carbon footprint and is also providing much needed clean drinking water to communities worldwide.
Waiakea water is actually Hawaii volcanic water that comes from the Mauna Loa volcano. The water from the volcano travels over 14,000 feet through filtering volcanic rock before it gets bottled. Waiakea is also good for you and has volcanic water benefits such as Alzheimer-beating silica. It has been found that consuming just 10mg of silica a day can greatly reduce the likelihood of getting Alzheimer’s. Waikea water has about 30 mg/L. Silica is also what gives Waiakea water its smoothness.
Each year, over 50 billion bottles are used, and a huge number of those bottles end up in our landfills where they will stay for about 1000 years when they finally begin to degrade. Waiakea water bottles only take about 15 years to break down. That is substantially less than the “average” decomposing rate of a plastic bottle. Waiakea is greatly reducing the amount of waste that builds up on our beautiful planet. Waiakea water pH is between 7.8 and 8.8 which makes it naturally alkaline. Purified water has a pH of about 7.
Waiakea uses a facility that uses 33 percent renewable energy to manufacture its product, and the company uses an aquifer that has a 1.4 billion gammon recharge rate. Waiakea is also considered to be a CarbonNeutral company and uses 100 percent polyethylene terephthalate. The way that the company produces its bottled water also reduces emissions by over 90 percent as well.
Waiakea water has partnered with Pump Aid to bring fresh drinking water to the communities that need it the most. With their help, Pump Aid has been able to donate 650 liters of clean water to rural African communities and has also gotten 3,200 Elephant Pumps established so that they can get clean drinking water. Waiakea gives back and is helping to keep our world beautiful.
