There is a lot of competition in the bottled water industry. Brands are vying for sales and trying to stand out from one another either by using a clever tagline or some type of interesting angle on marketing. Only some brands stand out based on what’s actually in the bottle and what it stands for. Waiakea Water is one of these distinct brands.
Waiakea Water is Hawaiian volcanic water. This brand collects its water from a spring at the base of the Mauna Loa Volcano. The water is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock. Along the way, it picks up trace minerals that are very healthy to drink.
Due to this natural process, the water is also alkaline. Waiakea Water pH is between 7.6 and 8.2. Pure water has a pH of 7 making it neutral. Healthy water is over 7 because it restores the body’s natural balance between acidic and alkaline.
Too many water bottles end up in landfills or, worse, out in the ocean. There is a deep need for a better water bottle in the world. The founder and chief executive officer of Waiakea Water, Ryan Emmons, is a leader in this area. His company has developed a fully degradable water bottle. It breaks down 97 percent faster than regular water bottles and so is much friendlier on the environment and aquatic life.
Beyond offering better water and a better water bottle, Waiakea Water is also a socially responsible brand. They created a partnership with the nonprofit Pump Aid to bring clean water to parts of Africa where that is very much lacking. For every liter of water this company sells, they help to create a full week’s worth of water in those areas. These are rural areas where Pump Aid helps them dig wells and install pumps to get at fresh, clean water under the surface.
Waiakea Water is a growing brand in the bottled water industry for these three reasons. They offer a healthy water to drink, delivered in environmentally friendly bottles, and help supply water to those who need it in parched areas of Africa.
