There is a new company in the bottled water industry, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water. This water was designed by Ryan Emmons and is meant to be a sustainable product with health benefits including easily recycled packaging that when profit is made, gives back to communities that need the proceeds. Waiakea water comes from the Mauna Loa volcano. The filtration process is natural that passes through the peak as well as mountain streams until the water reaches the aquifers. This water is so unique that it comes from a place with no pollution which is rare to find anywhere on earth in these times.
Waiakea Water is socially conscious in that it has united with Pump Aid, a non-profit desiring to install water pumps in rural Africa, specifically in underdeveloped areas of Malawi. The company has given 1.35 million people access to plumbing, and clean water. Less people are going to die of thirst in Africa because of one water company. Waiakea Water has a Ph of 7.8 and 8.8 as one of its physical properties. The other fact about Waiakea Water is the water qualifies as Carbon Neutral, which means it does not produce carbon to make the water that comes from a natural source. Waiakea Water also participates in reforestation efforts as part of their sustainability and recycling practices they feel responsible for. The source of this water is all-natural.
