Waiakea Generates Fresh, Clean, Sustainable Water

Waiakea Springs water is the first bottled water to be labeled carbon neutral. It is also the number one volcanic bottled water. Waiakea is Hawaii’s contribution to the fresh bottled water trend. The water originates from rainfall and snow melting off Mount Loa’s peaks. The water is then naturally filtered through porous volcanic rocks gathering minerals and electrolytes as flows along its path to its final destination, the Kea’au Aquifer.

The Waiakea resource is 100% sustainable, because 1.4 billion gallons a day are generated. The daily quantity is rechargeable and can be generated with ease. This water travels thousands of feet while being naturally filtered and minerals are deposited into the stream, making Waiakea springs water one of the most alkaline rich waters in the world with an 8.8 pH and enriched with electrolytes.

Hawaiians have a bond with nature that dates back to their origins on the islands of Hawaii. They refer to themselves as keiki o ka ‘āina, or “children of the land.” This means that they are meant “to respect and care for the land,” a tenet of the Hawaiian culture.

The symbiotic relationship Hawaiians have with their environment pays reverence to the origins of their food, clothing, housing, tools and musical instruments. Hawaiians assumed responsibility for protecting and conserving the environment. Especially embracing sustainability practices for the rich resources (such as Waiakea water) Hawaii can now claim.

Some of their environmental initiatives involve using 100% Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) bottles, participating in regional reforestation and using low emission shipping. Now, because of these efforts they are certified carbon-neutral. They didn’t stop there, they went a step further by donating 650 liters for every one liter sold. The donated water is given to disadvantaged communities in Africa through Pump-aid.

Waiakea is determined to generate fresh, clean, and healthy volcanic water using a negligible carbon footprint. Because of the company’s philanthropy even the poorest of the poor can experience Waiakea Springs water through the non-profit group, Pump-aid. Waiakea can continue respecting and caring for the land as they harvest and distribute this crystal clear mineral rich water all over the world.
