Flowing from the largest sub-aerial volcano in the world named the Mauna Loa, Waiakea’s water is not your typical water. Sifted through thousands of feet of mineral-rich volcanic rock before it’s even bottled, it is abundantly saturated with the minerals and electrolytes necessary for our bodies to perform optimally.
As an added delight, Waiakea water has a particularly sweet, smooth taste resulting from its natural alkalinity and it’s perfect amount of silica, leaving the mouth feeling soothed and quenched.
Uniquely, the Waiakea water doesn’t merely care only for their bottom line; it’s fervently impassioned about two social causes dear to their heart: the environment and the less-fortunate. They’re committed to helping the environment by using recycled eco-conscious packaging and carbon-neutral techniques within production, and also by helping the poor in rural Africa in need of clean water by donating 650 liters for every one liter sold.
Waiakea’swater motive for ensuring success is more than a “just for profit” company; this very company is their heart’s cry and mode of helping the poor by safely quenching their otherwise inescapable thirst.
According to NewYou, Ryan Emmons, Founder of Waiakea water, is thrilled with its growth. In 2012, he announced a 5,000% increase since its beginning with this to say: “I am incredibly proud of the growth we’ve accomplished in just a few years.” He continues: “We’ve gone from selling a couple thousand cases of Waiakea a year to more than 120,000 cases.
And, it feels even better knowing that as a result of this increase, 500 million liters of clean water have been donated to underserved communities in Africa.” Due to its rapid growth, the company is starting a new facility in Hawaii to meet the expansive international demand that has come with its tremendous success.
Emmons says it’s important to him that the world “drink ethically.” States Emmons, “I believe much of Waiakea’s success can be attributed to doing things differently–for one thing, we are the first premium bottled water to be certified CarbonNeutral®,” said Emmons. “In focusing on health, sustainability, and ethics, we’ve built a brand that makes individuals feel good on multiple levels.” Learn more about Waiakea Water: https://www.instagram.com/waiakea/?hl=en
One can now choose to drink “purely” and leave behind “regular” bottled water, which often is composed of artificially alkalized tap water anyhow. Now one can drink knowing they’re not only doing good to their own bodies, but also to the world around them as well.
