Waiakea water has gotten certified CarbonNeutral. They received this recognition due to the fact they use recycled materials. All of Waiakea bottles are made from a completely degradable plastic. What this means to the environment is these degradable bottles will break down in landfills, while regular plastic water bottles take more than 1,000 years. Waiakea’s plastic water bottles degrade in 15 years.
Waiakea takes care to monitor and control its carbon footprint on the earth, and hopes that in the future all plastic drinking bottles move to a more earth-friendly plastic.
Waiakea water is captured and bottled in Hilo, Hawaii. The water is filtered by volcanic rock from the Mauna Loa volcano. Because of this unique filtration the water contains electrolytes like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium, there is also a trace of silica. Silica adds a subtle velvety feel to water. Founder Ryan Emmons noted that research on silica demonstrated that consuming 10mg a day reduce the risk of certain disease, such as Alzheimer’s. Waiakea water contains 30 mg and has a pH range of 7.8 and 8.8, which means the water is naturally alkaline versus some companies that artificially alkaline their water.
Giving back has been a model for Emmons. His company has come together with Pump Aid. Pump Aid works with African communities to create clean water supplies. Clean water can improve sanitary conditions and with that, a better quality of life for the community.
Waiakea with Pump Aid brought 500 million liters of clean water to rural Africa, enough water to help over 1.35 million people. Not only do they work to provide water but also establish pumps, so communities can have their own source of freshwater. Get Additional Information Here, to learn more about the company
Emmons and Waiakea Water are outstanding examples of companies and leaders enhancing the world by reducing their carbon footprint, using recycled materials, and giving back to the earth and people.
