An increasing number of consumers are turning away from bottled water due to the environmental waste from plastic bottles and the impurities contained in many commercial brands. However, Waiakea Water is the exception on many fronts.
According to NoobPrenuer, Waiakea Water comes from a single pristine source from the snow melt and rain from Mauna Loa volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.. This consistent source of water is high in electrolytes, containing magnesium, sodium, calcium, potassium, and enough silica to leave a soft and silky feel to drinking the water. The amount of silica is more than the 10mg needed to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 11 percent.
The pH levels in Waiakea Water are exceptionally alkaline, ranging between 7.8 and 8.8. The high levels are conducive for good health because viruses and bacteria thrive in acidic environments. This is in contrast to distilled or purified water with pH levels around 7.0. Additionally, the body is tricked into believing more alkaline minerals are being absorbed with Waiakea Water than with the artificially created minerals in ionized water.
Unlike many commercially available brands, Waiakea Water comes from a sustainable aquifer with a 1.4 billion gallon rechargeable rate. The packaging facility is powered with 33 percent renewable energy and bottled with high grade 100 percent recycled polyethylene terephthalate which uses 85 percent less energy than standard bottles containing hormone-disrupting Bisphenol A.
Waiakea also operates on a social conscience and partnered with Pump Aid, a charity dedicated to providing clean water supplies to disadvantaged communities in rural Africa.
According to Aqua Grade, Superior water, packaging, and socail awareness are some of the reasons why Waiakea Water has experienced a 5000 percent growth since its inception in 2012. Currently Waiakea Water is selling more than 120,000 cases annually, available in more than 2000 stores in 30 states while growing exponentially in demand.
Waiakea Founder Ryan Emmons attributes the company’s success to doing things differently, being the first premium bottled water to be certified CarbonNeutral®. “In focusing on health, sustainability, and ethics, we’ve built a brand that makes individuals feel good on multiple levels.”
