One of the leaders in the multi-billion dollar industry of bottled water is Waiakea Water. This company was established in 2012 and is based in Hawaii. What separates Waiakea Water from the competition is the fact that their water comes from a volcano. They filter the volcanic water by running the water through porous volcanic rocks found at the Mauna Loa volcano.
Beyond water, Waiakea dedicates a lot of their resources to the cause of protecting the environment. Every year, billions of water bottles are dumped into our oceans or put in landfills. As you can imagine, this is very harmful for the environment. As of this year, Waiakea will be introducing to the world the first fully degradable bottle. Typically, it takes about 1,000 years for a normal plastic bottle to totally degrade into the environment. Waiakea Water has developed a formula that makes their bottles able to fully degrade into the environment in only 15 years. This is a tremendous accomplishment. Not only are these bottles degradable, but the bottle is made up of 100% recyclable plastic. In addition to making their bottles environment friendly, Waiakea is also Carbo Neutral certified. They use low-emission vehicles to transport their products where they need to go. This company is also very active in the community. For every liter of water purchased from Waiakea, they donate a week’s supply of clean water to the people in need in Malawi.
Waiakea Water is one of the fastest growing companies in America today, with no hint of slowing down. It is rare to find a company that is so aware about the affect that pollution has on the environment. Even more uncommon, is the fact that this company put in motion a game plan to combat the defilement of our home. Not only is Waiakea Water cool, they care about our future.
