Embedded in the Hawaiian culture is thousands of years of respect for nature. Great care is taken on protecting and preserving natural resources that are used for life necessities such as food and building materials. Such Hawaiian sustainability practices are at the heart of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water. Waiakea water is sourced from the Mauna Loa volcano, a sustainable freshwater resource. The Kea’au Aquifer located at the eastern base of the Mauna Loa volcano captures over 200 inches to snowmelt and rainwater every year.
Each day the pure rain and snowmelt accumulate 393 million gallons of sustainable water. With a sustainable water resource, Waiakea uses a total 33% renewable energy for sourcing operations. 25% of the renewable energy is from geothermal energy. Using a combination of renewable energy and sustainable resources, it helps conserve the surrounding environment of Hawaii and the world. As of September 2012, Waiakea was awarded the CarbonNeutral certification. Waiakea works closely with The CarbonNeutral company to reduce business emissions, significantly reducing the environmental impact.
Founded in 2012, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water maintains the mission of providing pure and healthy water. Waiakea is committed to providing delicious water from Hawaii without negatively impacting the environment. By using 33% renewable energy, Waiakea water is bottled from the world’s most sustainable source of water, the Kea’au Aquifer. With every bottle comes a 100% rPET free guarantee. Guaranteeing 100% rPET free allows Waiakea to reduce its carbon footprint by 90%.
Keeping the commitment to sustainability, Waiakea guarantees funding for PumpAid.Org. With the purchase of every bottle, funding goes to provide over 650 liters of drinkable water to developing countries such as the rural communities of Africa. By the sale of every bottle, Waiakea is dedicated to ending the global water crisis. Waiakea is naturally filtered through volcanic rock that enriches the water with minerals and electrolytes. From the natural aquifer comes an 8.8 pH making it one of the most Alkaline natural waters worldwide.
