Waiakea Water is from Hawaii, believe it or not! The name definitely sounds Hawaiian. You can’t get away from this. It is pronounced, why-uh-kay-uh. It means broad waters.
Aside from these facts, what is so special about it? This Hawaiian Volcanic Water is filtered through porous age-old, thousands of feet deep rock to produce a product that is truly unique. This “rock” is the Mauna Loa volcano located near Hilo. No other water is made in quite the same way. Because of this, there are the volcanic water benefits. The water is rich in the minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride and electrolytes due to the filtration process. It is naturally alkaline with a Waiakea water pH of between 7.6 and 8.2.
The Waiakea Water company surely stands out in the world of bottled water. It has been certified Carbon Neutral in a business environment nowadays that insists on leaving less of a footprint in the manufacturing process. They are one of the first companies to use post-consumer rPet recycled plastic in their bottles, which is BPA free. They use a process called TimePlast technology. Instead of 1000 years or more for a regular plastic bottle to degrade, a bottle of this kind will only take 15 years to do the same.
Established in 2012, Waiakea Water has also made an endeavor to give back to the community. This comes in the form of donating a week’s supply or 650 liters of clean water in Malawi and other areas around the world for every liter of Waiakea Water sold. This is done through PumpAid and is a dedication this company makes to make the world a better place. They are truly exhibiting the policy of “malama i ka ‘aina“, which means to respect and care for the land. I might add, its people, too. The company believes to “drink healthy, drink sustainably, drink ethically”. The last two reflect their commitment to a lower carbon footprint and the deeply felt need on their part to keep paying it forward.
