Since 2012, Waiakea Springs, named after an ancient subdivision on the big Hawaii island, has been producing bottled water for customers around the world. Of course, this has become a very profitable industry for a myriad of companies that are now making billions from placing what people used to drink primarily out of a faucet into bottles and delivering. Each of these companies tries to mark theirs as something unique that a consumer can believe in. So, what makes the Waiakea water different from the rest?

First of all, to many consumers, the “made in Hawaii” theme is just something that seems healthy and nature inspired. There are a number of products that come from the islands and use this to boost sales. However, nothing comes straight from the volcanoes like their water, and the water actually runs through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock as it winds through the Mauna Loa volcano there in Hawaii. Waiakea Water says that their company’s triple bottom line is to be healthy, sustainable, and ethical through the initiatives and products that they provide.
So, in this direction, Waiakea Water has been certified as a Carbon Neutral company since they have incorporated a fleet of low-emission vehicles that is used to deliver the product to buyers. Also, the company takes about 3 percent of all of their profits and redistributes it to nonprofit organizations and local community programs that are working to better the environment and the world. But probably the most impressive of all of these aims is the fact that with the new year (2018) they will emerge as the first company to bottle their water in a fully degradable bottle on top of the fact that these bottles will be made from a plastic product that is 100 percent recyclable. All of this is living up to the Hawaiian motto “malama i ka ‘aina” which means “to respect and care for the land.” Visit BevNet to know more.
With all of this, the Waiakea Water company has been spotlighted on numerous top lists at various media outlets. It certainly seems that you are going to indulge in some of nature’s most abundant resource, then why not help contribute to the betterment of the globe?
