Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is a healthy source for hydration harvested from the spring above the Mauna Loa Volcano and filtered through the volcanic rock as it flows to the base. After 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock, it emerges infused with the essential minerals, silica, magnesium and calcium. Plus, the water has an alkaline content that makes it ideal for human consumption. Waiakea Water has an alkaline ph of 7.6 to 8.2.
Not only is Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water healthy, it is also carbon neutral. The water is harvested from a sustainable source thousands of miles away from the nearest industrial plant. The plastic bottle is now made of a product that degrades and is reabsorbed by the earth in 15 years, plus the bottle is recyclable.
Waiakea is currently the only bottled water using this new degradable plastic bottle. Every other plastic water bottle will be discarded and found in a landfill or end up as litter. Today, our Asian neighbors pollute the ocean with more than eight million tons of plastic annually. In the United States, of the 50 billion plastic bottles used only 12 billion were recycled. That means 75% of the bottles used are somewhere polluting our environment.
Since the average plastic bottle takes up to 1,000 years to degrade, we will be forced to live with this pollution for centuries. Waiakea cares about the environment. It donates three percent of its revenue to the community and non-profits. It gives a week’s supply of water to the Southeastern African country of Malawi for every bottle of water it sells. Waiakea also uses low emission vehicles to deliver its bottled water.
Waiakea makes every effort to take care of the environment and it’s making great strides toward hydrating the world with clean water. In 2018, Waiakea may be the only bottled water company embracing the new biodegradable plastic, but hopefully others will be soon to follow.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was named Inc. 500’s fastest growing companies. It has continued to represent all the positive traits that placed it in that position. It’s most substantial step has been to be the first bottled water company to use a fully biodegradable plastic bottle.
