There are many brands of bottled water out there in the market nowadays. Waiakea is one of the newcomer brands in the market. Established in 2012, Waiakea aims at providing healthy and delicious Hawaiian Volcanic water while at the same time contributes to clean water access in third world countries. Their water is unique in a way given the processes it undergoes before being packaged. They tap water from Hawaii using the Snowbelt and rain on the peak of the active Mauna Loa volcano. This is one of the purest places in the world.
It offers extraordinarily charitable, healthy and sustainable premium bottled water. The company gives donations of one week’s of worth for every liter they sell to African areas that are in need and across the world. Malawi is where the impact of this initiative is mostly felt.
This company is the first one to be awarded the carbonneutral certification in the United States and leads in creating initiatives geared towards a sustainable environment. Their water is not just like the typical bottled water in the market. It offers health and other benefits to the consumer because of its optimum pH level of between 7.8 – 8.8 and mineral composition like potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium.
They have partnered with Pump Aid which is a non-profit organization that aims at installing water pumps in African remote and rural areas without clean and safe water. They are currently focusing on Malawi which explains why the country is feeling the enjoy most of Waiakea’s donation initiatives.
The company will begin to use fully degradable bottles in next year a move aimed at showing their commitment to sustaining the surroundings. The bottles are completely recyclable and are made from TimePlast, a material with a lifespan of 15 yrs. They will be the first company to use these type bottles.
One pound of TimePlast can be used to alter a thousand pounds of bottles. This means it can quickly be absorbed in the bottled drinks industry since they are cost-effective, changing the whole industry globally while sustaining the environment. Waiekea’s efforts of sustainability drinks will be highly boosted by this move.http://www.medicaldaily.com/alkaline-water-vs-plain-drinking-water-can-waiakea-bottled-water-lead-optimal-health-330396
