In an article on affiliatedork.com, dated August 28th of 2018, the company Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Bottled Water was featured as an unique and “game changer” in the bottled water business. This company isn’t just another company putting bottle water on shelves; it is changing the industry in many positive ways. The company was founded to “create positive change for the environment and people in need all over the world.”
Some of the innovative ways this company is changing the business in a positive and Eco-friendly way are as follows. Waiakea Water is the first Carbon-Neutral certified bottled water company in the United States. For every liter that is purchased, the company donates one week of clean water through an initiative known as “Pump Aid.” Pump Aid provides clean drinking water to those primarily in Africa, especially the country of Malawi in Africa. Clean drinking water is extremely difficult to find in rural Malawi and through companies like Waiakea Water, that is becoming possible which saves many lives!
Not only is this company helping “Pump Aid” but also is donating a portion of their profits to the “Kama’aha Education Initiative” in Hawaii. This helps Native Hawaiians succeed in many different aspects of education in the core subjects.
Waiakea is truly “hawaiian volcanic water” because the source of the water comes from the eastern end of the Mauna Loa Volcano. The self sustaining aquifer impact to the environment is limited and has volcanic water benefits as it uses 33 percent renewable energy.
Some of the biggest positive impacts this company provides in that every bottle of drinking water is 100% RPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) RPET uses 85% less energy, 90% less water and 90% fewer carbon emission. All bottles are also BPA free. Not only have the accomplished these feats but they are currently working in 2018 to make fully recyclable and naturally degradable bottles!
Ultimately, this company isn’t about just making profits from filling shelves at the store. It is a company that is changing the bottle water business in its manufacturing process and educational initiatives. It is helping to protect the environment and providing profits to provide clean drinking water to those in Africa and around the world. All bottle water companies should strive to become like the Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Bottled Water!
