Water is a vital part to the health and well-being of human life. However, there is water and then there is natural Hawaiian water.
This mentality even gets extended to water. Fortunately for Hawaiians, one of the best and most sustainable sources of water is its native volcanic water. This form of stability takes shape in the company Waiakea Inc., which produces Waiakea Bottled Water and ships them around the world.
Waiakea Inc. utilizes rain and melted snow which coalesce on the snowy peaks and the Mauna Loa volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii and come down on the eastern side of the mountain. As a result, nearly 400 million gallons of purified mineral water comes from this source on a daily basis. Because the water is going through porous lava rock, the water itself is filled with many nutritious, healthy minerals.
Since its inception in 2012, Waiakea Inc. has rapidly grown in its business of providing premium bottled water. However, the company doesn’t stop there as it lives its motto of sustainability through a number of initiatives. While its bottled water service is at its core, the company provides so much more in the environmental sense.
While Waiakea brand has electrolyte-rich healthy and natural water, the company also prides itself on creating a 100 percent high-grade recyclable polyethylene terephthalate material to use for all of its bottles. By using this bottle, 90 percent less water and 85 percent less energy gets used in its creation. This reduces carbon emissions over the typical make of a bottle by some 90 percent.
For Waiakea, the overall mission of the company isn’t simply providing sustainable premium water, but to help support a lifestyle that is both healthy and environmentally friendly for years to come.
