Waiakea Water – Better for the Environment

Waiakea bottled water is taking the world by storm, and although there are many competitors in the bottled water market, Waiakea stands out from all the rest. Waiakea bottled water has a great, smooth taste but the company is also doing a lot to reduce their carbon footprint.

Waiakea comes from the words, “wai akea” which means “broad waters” in Hawaiian. The eco-conscious company was first established in 2012, and they don’t do a lot of over-promoting. They just offer the good stuff without harming the environment and consumers like that.

Waiakea water contains electrolytes such as calcium, sodium, magnesium, and potassium. Their water also contains 30mg of silica which gives it a smooth taste that goes down easily.

Studies have proven that by drinking just 10mg of silica each day, the risk of getting Alzheimer’s is greatly reduced. The pH of Waiakea water is between 7.8 and 8.8 which means that it is naturally alkaline.

Besides having really great-tasting water, Waiakea is very conscious about the environment, and the company produces its water in a facility that uses a whopping 33 percent renewable energy and they are considered to be CarbonNeutral. Their packaging is made of 100 percent recycled materials and even the manufacturing process that they use reduces the amount of emissions by 90 percent than the competitor’s bottles. Their bottles also happen to be BPA-free.

A plastic bottle typically take over 1,000 years to break down but the bottles that Waiakea uses only take about 15 years to break down greatly reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in our landfills over time. This small change is a huge impact on the environment.

Waiakea is also a partner with Pump Aid which is a charity that is all about getting clean water to rural communities in Africa. The charity has been able to provide over 1.35 million people with safe drinking water and has been able to implement over 3,200 Elephant Pumps. So far, more than 500 million liters of water has been donated to better the lives of those living in rural African communities.
